Internationally renowned world music & dance ensemble Libana returns to Maine to take part in the UUCB Concerts for a Cause series at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick on March 11 at 7:3 0pm.
Libana’s global repertoire covers a vast musical spectrum expressed with stunning close a cappella vocals and an impressive palette of instruments. Interweaving music, dance and story from such divergent cultures as the Balkans, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, South America and Europe.
Libana’s nine recordings and three songbooks have inspired the formation and the repertoires of song circles and choruses of all ages around the globe, and their music and performances have kindled a sense of joy, strength, healing and empowerment in several generations of listeners.
Libana is an ensemble that performs worldwide as troubadours of peace– most recently, in Bulgaria, India, and Morocco — and that has given expression to women’s experience for 35 years. The group has numerous CDs to its credit, including the most recent Instrument of Peace.
Whether moved to tears by their beautiful soaring harmonies, or lifted out of you chair by their pounding rhythms and dance, you will leave Libana’s performance feeling uplifted.
Here’s a small sample of some of Libana’s music:
Tickets: $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Available at the church office (1 Middle St, Brunswick), Gulf of Maine Books (134 Maine St, Brunswick), or online at http://libana.brownpapertickets.com.
