8 PM Live from Lyric Hall in New Haven: Sacha Silva
Sacha Silva and his critically acclaimed world music group will make a live appearance at the beautifully restored turn-of-the-century Lyric Hall in New Haven. This special performance will be hosted by WPKN and broadcast live.
Sacha Silva creates a unique and accessible blend of Spanish, Indian and modern classical music growing from his double life as a guitarist-composer and globe-trotting development economist. Together with singer Munya B, cellists Drew Morgan and Amali Premawardhana, flautist Eliza Marshall and percussionist Rohin Khemani, the band creates a new kind of world music: a bold, energetic and acoustic mix that speaks to a new generation of global wanderers, travelers, immigrants, expats and half-breeds.
The band’s unique and accessible sound has quickly garnered rave reviews throughout the world music community. Their debut CD, Susurro, was called unforgettable and startling [with] jaw-dropping beauty and sophistication” by the indie music pioneers CDBaby.com. Critics and DJs on four continents called their second CD, Anatomy of a Coup, an “audacious recording that gives music the last say” (RootsWorld.com magazine) and “a beautiful album [that] celebrates the resilience of the human spirit.” (SAMAR Magazine).
Lyric Hall Theater is located at 827 Whalley Avenue in New Haven. Doors open at 7:30pm. The show starts precisely at 8:00, so don’t be late!
