Join Matapa Music & Arts Organization in kicking off our third World Music Series with Inti-Illimani – direct from Chile. For over four decades, Inti-Illimani has intoxicated audiences around the world. In their homeland of Chile and greater Latin America, they are a veritable institution, a cultural icon famous for their unique poetic and socio-political history.
Chico Antonio (Direct from Mozambique)
November 15, 2014
Molson Canadian Studio- 8pm
Chico Antonio is an icon of contemporary Mozambican music – multi-rhythmic and multi-melodic. His artistic career of over 40 years has generated an unmistakably Mozambican musical style with such creative intensity that it is hard to classify whether you’re inside or outside the country. When you listen to Chico Antonio – the pinging of a modern guitar beneath the gentle breath of a flute, or the dragging beat of the drum in sweet dispute with the timbila – you wonder, is it Afropop? Afro rock? Or Afro jazz? And the answer is always the same – it’s Chico Antonio!
Matapa Music & Arts Organization gratefully acknowledges the support of the Ontario Arts Council for our World Music Series.
