Tickets: $17 adv., $20 dr. Philadelphia based singer Venissa Santi is one of the most beguiling voices in music today. She infuses her songs with ingenious vocalastics to captivate the soul of her listeners. The tone and texture of her voice recalls to mind the sensuous rustle of fine silk. Harmonically adventurous Ms. Santi is capable of singing in a myriad of quarter tones until she hits the root note of a chord. On the music of her new album, Big Stuff, she re-imagines timeless classics with prodigious brilliance while raising the bar on traditional Afro-Cuban folk forms. Ms. Santi will be presenting the songs from her exquisite new album with a fine ensemble and guest artists Roman Filiu- Alto Saxophone (composer and soloist of new release "Musae", former member of Irakere), arranger drummer /composer Francois Zayas, and bay area greats Murray Lowe on Piano and Saul Sierra Alonso on Bass.
