Internationally acclaimed singer/songwriters and performers, Lisa Ferraro and Erika Luckett return to Salt Lake City to offer a concert of heart expanding, soul nourishing, smile inducing music. Join us at Desert Journey Dance Studio on Sunday, August 11 at 6:30 pm for an intimate evening of music.
Nevermind that their combined voices blend so seamlessly we forget there are two of them, or the multi-faceted guitar playing is so versatile that one instrument becomes a funk band or a trio of flamenco playing gypsies. These two extraordinarily talented artists are far more than the sum of their parts and the music they create offers a feast of Sonic Nourishment.
Before joining efforts, each musician spent years polishing her craft, gaining accolades and awards in her wake. As a child, Lisa heard vibrations emanating from flowers and trees, symphonies ringing from the garden. She sang what she heard and developed a dynamic range that allowed her to interpret the music of the world. This soulful awareness comes through her voice whether inspiring congregations, leading sizzling dance bands or melting audiences with stirring interpretations of jazz standards. Her voice and presence command attention and exude the sublime.
Erika was steeped in the pulse of the planet with her transcontinental upbringing. Born in Mexico and raised in Venezuela and Brazil, she listened to the dance of her surroundings: the sambas and rancheras swaying through the streets, the songs of frogs in the trees. Each element found translation into her guitar and voice. Her innovative guitar playing emerged from the desire to create an orchestra of sound from only six strings.
Their trajectories first intersected in 2006 while performing at a festival in the American heartland. Hearing the remarkable quality of their vocal blend, Lisa and Erika began to explore a musical collaboration. Within months, they teamed up with Sufi scholar and translator, Kabir Helminski, to create collection of songs inspired by the 13th century mystic poet, Rumi. A short time later they found themselves in the captivating richness of Istanbul, collaborating and recording with Turkish musicians. Their music ignited a surge of invitations which led to performances in Melbourne, Australia and across the US and Canada.
Don't miss this opportunity to hear them live in Salt Lake City!
