Hoping you are all well and staying warm, and having nice times with friends and family! It’s that time of year again, to look over the year that was and some of the exciting stuff that’s coming up for the next year.
2015 was a very behind the scenes year for Siach Hasadeh, only a handful of relaxed performances and mostly working on new things. We have nearly enough new material now to record a 3rd album (!) which should start getting into the works in the next few months and hopefully ready to release towards the beginning of 2017.
In the mean time, we are really excited to announce that we’ve been given a residency at the very wonderful Maison de la Culture Ahuntsic-Cartierville, by our dear friend and the invaluable maman to the entire world music scene in Montreal, Liette Gauthier (who, along with her small team, have done more to foster creativity and music than you can imagine, tell your MPs, MLAs and Mayors!). Leading up to our residence in March, we will be developing a 50 minute program which will make the music more accessible to wider audiences and hopefully be engaging and interesting. And then… starting in the fall we will be taking part in the CAM en Tournée program of the Conseil des Arts de Montreal, which means we will be able to perform the new program in many wonderful venues around Quebec which are free to the public, and which always have wonderful audiences and technical teams.
We also have a very neat video in the works by the amazing Chris Henschel, we haven’t seen it yet but boy are we excited to share it with you all when it’s ready!
Besides all of that, we have worked on a side project of Yiddish tango songs with singer Jane Enkin from Winnipeg, and Brigitte Dajczer, which has been really enriching and hopefully will take off in the coming year with recording? Performance? Drop us a line to book the project!
So stay tuned in the new year for all of that and more exciting things to come, thanks to you all for your support and enthusiasm, and looking forward to seeing many of you and sharing music and good time together!
All the best from Yoni, and Siach Hasadeh!
