Event description
Jolie Holland with Rupa & The April Fishes

About this Event

Over the span of her career, Jolie Holland has knotted together a century of American song—jazz, blues, soul, rock and roll—into some stew that is impossible to categorize with any conventional critical terminology. This is her burden and her gift, to know all of these American songs of the last ten decades in her head and her heart, and to have to wrestle with their legacy. She dives straight to the pathos of a song the way the very greatest singers, singers like Mavis Staples, or Al Green, or Skip James, or Tom Waits do.

Rupa and the April Fishes create a "powerfully evocative" (LA times) sound that pulsates with the pluralism of US culture, celebrating the art of resistance through a wide musical palette that pulls from over a decade of playing street parties, festivals and symphonic concerts through 29 countries with songs in 5 languages. Under the direction of composer, front-woman, activist and physician Rupa, the band creates a live experience which is a manifestation of a world beyond nations, where the heart of humanity beats louder than anything that divides us. Their latest album, Growing Upward (2019) has been called "a firecracker of a record" touching on issues of climate justice and belonging with lyrics that are "pure poetry" (Songlines Magazine).
