In this video, DALA performs an acoustic version of “Levi Blues” from their album Best Day. Enjoy this tune sung just for you, Soundboard reader, filmed in the front lobby of the Winter Garden Theatre (where they just so happen to be playing this Thursday!) And hey! just for fun, if you feel like singing along, check out the lyrics and guitar chords, posted here.
Danny here. Wow, it’s been a wild ride the past two years. From recording the album in Belize and releasing Black Birds Are Dancing Over Me on Six Shooter Records then a JUNO nom, then a world wide release on Cumbancha Records, then a north American tour! Who ever thought it could have all come from one little thought like “hey, maybe I should try to make an album in Belize?”
It’s hard not to crack a smile when Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine (known as Dala) sing together. The duo, who is featured on the cover of our 2013|14 Season brochure, just might be the most charming, uplifting, and talented voices you’ll hear all day.
We met up with Dala recently as they sang the title track from their latest album in the grand staircase of the Winter Garden Theatre.
In an exclusive interview with John van Driel from Classical 96.3 FM, we hear from the internationally acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma, who speaks to Classical 96.3 FM about his (awkward) first meeting with pianist Kathryn Stott, their upcoming recital at Roy Thomson Hall, and his latest album with his Grammy Award-winning Silk Road Ensemble.
In anticipation of the first of four concerts this season with Classic Albums Live, we asked Craig Martin – musician, producer and founder of the Toronto-based collective – to discuss the Supertramp classic, Crime of the Century. Formatted to resemble the lyric sheets that we’ve all followed along with as we’ve listened to our favourite Lps, below is a guest post from Craig in all its lower case glory.
there’s a great track on Crime a bit of a deep track
it’s called ‘rudy‘
it reminds me of a Beatles’ song
it kind of picks up where ‘a day in the life’ left off
