Live at the Village welcomes back the Mara! band to launch a very beautiful CD, Tra Parole e Silenzio. The band members Mara, Liew Kiek, Paul Cutlan and Steve Elphick have composed on the tender poems of Eduardo Di Giovanni. The Legendary saxophonist, Sandy Evans completes the quintet.
The multi ARIA award winning Mara! are joined by the Martenitsa Choir to perform the songs they have recorded together. Mara Kiek will conduct and singer Silvia Entcheva will feature.
Mara! have developed a unique style which fuses folk roots with modern jazz expressionism. In Tra Parole e Silenzio the individual composer’s works form a unified song cycle, reflecting more than two decades of working together at the leading edge of world music.
