warm greetings from Jaggery Camp ~ Singer Mali here.
Delightedly & relievedly, we (pretty much almost) finished tracking the new album this past weekend ~ and so, for the remainder of this month, we turn our attention to an extremely and truly and very special and exciting show coming up for us in Boston:
We will be presenting a concert at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston on Friday, May 1st, featuring new material inspired by the life and work of Leonardo da Vinci. We’re calling the show Jaggery Presents The Beautiful & The Grotesque and it coincides with a visiting exhibit at the MFA of rare Leonardo drawings, some of which have never been shown before in Boston (Leonardo and The Idea of Beauty).
This is a “big-deal” show for us — I’d say the biggest deal show we’ve ever had, and it’s been in the works for months. We’ve been immersing ourselves in everything da Vinci ~ the fella was pretty much a genius, and it’s more than a little daunting, to say the least.
That being said, we’ve jumped in neck-deep ~ almost every member of Jaggery will be creating their own piece for this one, we’re planning some never-before collaborations, and in general, THE SHOW IS GONNA ROCK LIKE . . . LIKE . . . like . . . well, I can’t think of a suitable Leo reference that would work well here, but heck, just look at the poster!
We are particularly honored to have the spectacular Rabbit Rabbit (Carla Kihlstedt/Matthias Bossi) start off the night, with special guests joining them, including bass wizard Jon Evans, who we’ve had the privilege of working with as engineer and co-producer on the new album!
So – THE BASICS:
where: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston – Remis Auditorium (Auditorium 161) (we don’t know what that number means, but that’s how the museum refers to the Remis – we aren’t aware of the museum having 160 other auditoriums, pretty sure the Remis is it)
465 Huntington Ave • Boston, MA 02115
when: Friday, May 1st @ 7:30pm
info & tickets HERE
We REALLY REALLY hope you can make this one! We can’t wait to share the new songs (well, actually, at this stage we really can wait as they need rehearsing & some still need to be written) as well as the process of seeking inspiration from the remnants, the clues, the artifacts of the process of this very ambitious, revered, brilliant, remarkable artist/inventor/scientist and true Renaissance man.
Come party with us like it’s the fourteenth to seventeenth century!!!
hope you can make it!
