Jami Sieber in Concert with Nancy Rumbel Portland, Oregon
We are excited to host one of our favorite musicians electric cellist/vocalist, Jami Sieber, to this intimate venue in Portland. Jami has performed in Portland many times over the years, and this time she will be joined by Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist, Nancy Rumbel. Do not miss this special event.
Jami reaches inside the soul with compositions that are contemporary, timeless, lush, and powerfully evocative. Her style of performance has been recognized internationally. Her music transforms from the deepest stillness to moving melodies and rhythms that light the soul on fire. She can spin sound into a stirring cocoon, where longing interweaves with serenity and where an innate sense of completeness evokes the interconnectedness of all beings. Her life-long commitment to the environment, social justice, and the healing arts is at the heart of her music, reflecting a deep dedication to the arts as a medium of exploration and awareness of the interconnectedness of all beings.
Jami is a performer who makes transformation appear simple, taking a traditionally classical instrument and morphing it into the source of a multi-dimensional range of expressive works. In the 30 years since she began performing professionally, Jami has always done something unique employing electronics and looping techniques to create sounds never before associated with the cello. Her work has included collaborations with dancers, poets, visual artists, improvisers and instrumentalists around the world including elephants in Thailand! Her signature effects have added depth to numerous films, dance projects and a video game.
Nancy Rumbel is a professional composer, recording artist, performer and teacher. Her primary instruments are oboe, English horn, double wooden ocarinas, clay ocarinas and keyboards. She is well known for her work for the past 28 years with the Grammy award-winning duo Tingstad & Rumbel. She has also recorded on releases with Susan Osborn, Cris Williamson, Lydia McCauley and most recently Wind Music of Taiwan. In the late 70s/early 80s she toured and recorded extensively with the Paul Winter Consort. Nancy's imaginative sound palettes and willingness to delve into uncharted solo performance and recording opportunities has brought her together with a variety of musicians, film makers, dancers, writers, photographers, painters, bird watchers and even psychologists.
