“THERE’S A BIG CARIBBEAN VOICE INSIDE THAT TINY WHITE CANADIAN,” music critic Dennis Cook wrote about Mana Mady. He wasn’t exaggerating. The British Columbia-born, Oakland-living Madeline Streicek describes herself as being raised on a “healthy diet of Maria Callas, Joni Mitchell, and Bach suites,” all of which she combines into songs that blend classical, jazz, and pop over a do-wop canvas. To celebrate the release of her new album, Another Trip Around the Sun, Mana Mady is performing at 7 pm Friday June 22 at the Berkeley Unitarian Universalist Church, 1924 Cedar St. Mana Mady, who sings and plays the piano and ukelele, will be joined by performance artist Kaitlin McSweeney, dancer Alex Jenkins, soundscape weaver Mateo Lugo, and more. Listen here for a taste of the music.
Off The Grid, the popular gathering of food trucks that has already proved a hit in North Berkeley, will launch on Telegraph Avenue on Thursday, July 12.
