Alejandra Ribera plus Ayelet Rose Gottlieb’s Shiv’A
Time 9:00 pm
A singer-songwriter born in Canada to an Argentinian father and a Scottish mother, Alejandra Ribera possesses the voice of the ultimate dreamer, swaddled in gossamery, delicately arranged songs, designed for flight. She brings to mind artists influenced and impacted by blues and its many derivatives; contemporary storytellers such as Rufus Wainwright, Melingo, Tom Waits, Chavela Vargas and Arthur H. Her breakthrough album La Boca was produced and arranged by Jean Massicotte (Lhasa de Sala, Patrick Watson). Without a doubt we'll be hearing Alejandra Ribera's name with increasing frequency in the years to come - she possesses a magical new voice that promises to take us on intoxicating journeys to exotic new lands.
