We are so excited to announce our most diverse musical lineup ever for Winter 2023! Across five shows, we’ll bring music from Argentina to Brazil to our jazz lounge in downtown Hamilton.

Payadora draws from the height of Buenos Aires’ tango tradition, and Diane Roblin and Life Force performs high-energy jazz-funk. Juno award-winning band Avataar led by Sundar Viswanathan marries the musical traditions of India and Africa with modern influences including Snarky Puppy and Robert Glasper. Finally, rescheduled from 2020, London-based composer, singer and guitar player Mario Bakuna brings us “Brazilian Landscapes”
