Kereya (Cuban folk/pop duo)
A few weeks ago Kereya came at very short notice to play at the shop. They played on a Wednesday night with very little publicity, so the audience was understandably small, however those who came to listen were delighted! These two young men blew us away with their very professional delivery and superb musicianship. They are basically the top group in their province of Cuba, and having heard them, that is quite understandable. Omar is their gifted guitarist and does most of the vocals, and Julio (who is an orchestra director back home) has a great violin technique and occasionally adds some vocal harmonies. Since then they have been doing a whistle-stop tour of Ontario and various Festivals (including the Ottawa Folk Festival) hosted by Stittsville's Bob Denney. They have kindly agreed to come in again for a final performance before they head back to Cuba next week, so that more of us can have a chance to admire their playing and singing.
If you read John Curry's review of their first performance here you will know why we are sounding so enthusiastic about them: http://www.ottawacommunitynews.com/news-story/4856166-cuban-music-flows-in-gaia-java-shop/.
Don't miss this chance to come and hear Omar and Julio perform some lively Cuban music to wake up your Stittsville September! Check them out at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILUobMXrnoM&feature=share.
No entry charge for purchasing customers, but remember the best seats go first, and we put out a 'donations' jar so that appreciative customers can contribute to the well-being of the marvellous musicians who come to entertain us. .
