Michal Hoter's final master concert

This concert will take you on a journey of discovery through ancient Yemeni Jewish music to Morocco, Andalusia, American jazz, Taraab from Zanzibar, and beyond.  Earth Colour is Michal’s final master concert as an outcome of her field trips in Morocco, Turkey, Israel and Zanzibar. During her travels, Michal collaborated with local musicians, resulting in the new music heard in this concert. Michal creates new music through the medium of Ethnic jazz and original arrangements of traditional material and her vocals may be described as ‘jazz dipped in Eastern promise. Her music is inspired by nature, people and cultures.
