Toronto Tickets + “This Island” Pre-sale Available Friday December 16
Audiences that experienced folk-pop-and-more artist Alejandra Ribera at Massey Hall in support of Ron Sexsmith in 2015, or alongside Chilly Gonzales as part of the Live at Massey Hall series (stay tuned for the 30-minute film of her set), know the power of her performances to transfix. Exploring the unexpected places we find light, the critically-acclaimed award-winning Ribera’s sophomore album, This Island sees release in early 2017 and continues her exploration of luminescence — this time leaving the depths of mythological waters and delving firmly into the experience of the human heart. She cites some unlikely influences as inspiring her approach to this recording — a speech by actress Tilda Swinton at the Rothko Chapel, a documentary about performance artist Marina Abramović and studying movement in Paris with one of Pina Bausch’s earliest devotees. “There is this infinite potential that lies in that moment between suspension and release … I wanted to put a sonic microscope on that moment and invite the listener into that intimate space normally reserved for those who create the music.”
Presented by Massey Hall, Trinity St. Paul’s Centre will provide a fittingly awe-inspiring ambiance for the experience of this singular performer and we can’t wait for you to join us.
Tickets for Alejandra’s March 15th performance will be on sale Wednesday at 10am for Friends Firs members and to the public on Friday, December 16th at 10:00am. They can be purchased HERE
Pre sales for her new album “This Island” will also be available on Friday, December 16 via the MapleMusic Store
