The sheer abundance of music from around the world in Berkeley this month is extraordinary.
The San Francisco vocalist, pianist, and composer’s sound encompasses traditional Vietnamese modes, jazz improvisation and harmonies, French chanson and beyond.
There is almost too much to choose from on June 30. Electric Squeezebox Orchestra, the saxophonist David Murray and the percussionist Kahil El’Zabar, and Endangered Blood are all playing.
The violinist, vocalist and Oakland resident celebrates the release of her debut album ‘Haven’ Sunday at the Back Room in Berkeley.
Jenny and the Charmers — think American Songbook but also Joni Mitchell, Sting, John Mayer and Shawn Colvin — play Thursday. Also in town: Carol Faye and Jeff Denson.
There will be some great performances in Berkeley this weekend including by DakhaBrakha, by the Brazilian-born Berkeley High alum, Ian Faquini, and the klezmer trio Veretski Pass.
For Black History Month, venues around Berkeley will be presenting an amazing array of music.
