About this Event

The first edition of Fabric Arts Festival, organized by Casa dos Açores da Nova Inglaterra, presents Kelsey Lu and Lula Pena.

An evening with two brilliant female artists at the height of their craft.

When you think about a cello you may be immediately driven to a certain space where melancholy and classicism co-exist. North-Carolina-native Kelsey Lu is a classically trained cellist, however, her approach to the instrument is truly unconventional. As The Guardian states “Kelsey Lu deals in music where the unifying genre is, essentially, beauty.”. Having collaborated with many, including Blood Orange, Kelela, Florence + The Machine, Jamie XX, Solange, Kamasi Washington and Sampha, with Blood, her debut album, she unveils a whole new territory for her music. Dream-pop, blues, electronics, classical and ambient music are put together in a very contemporary, definitively L. A. sound, driven by a surreally powerful voice.

It only took two albums for the world to understand the special place that Lula Pena claims for herself in world music. A singer-poet, a mysterious woman that hides behind the guitar to best surprise us, an exquisite composer whose music is a living organism. Her music exists in a strange ocean, bordered by continents called folk blues, flamenco, French chanson, fado, bossa nova amongst others, grazing them all and leaving none intact. A unique, deep voice, inspired by multiple references, playing with borders and with the best poetry that gathers a worldwide stream of devoted followers, in a kind of international secret society that awaits every public appearance.

Please note: P.A.L. is not wheelchair accessible.
