Common Ground features artists seemingly different in discipline, practices, or cultural identity who explore global connections, celebrating distinctions that make cultures unique.  Our NEW series Common Ground: Mini-Global Mashups are curated by acclaimed trumpeter and composer Frank London (The Klezmatics) bringing together two amazing global music artists along with accompanists for an afternoon of music, conversation and exploration.  Post-show Q&A. 

Called “The Joni Mitchell of Haiti”, songstress Emeline Michel is internationally acclaimed for merging native Haitian compas and rara music with jazz, pop, bossa nova, and samba into deeply moving, joyful music. 

Bandleader and solo artist Dan Nadel's style combines flamenco, jazz, and Middle Eastern influences.  He also collaborates with Gypsy/Neo-Balkan, Macedonian band Tavche Gravche.

This concert is accompanied by jazz pianist and composer, Yayoi Ikawa.
