Dear friends, 

here are some of the concerts happening very soon in New York that I'm happy to be a part of: 
 

November dates with Klazz-ma-tazz at Tagine TBA
 

Singing an original work by a French-German composer Alexander Lieberman with a rhythm section and a string quartet
  With Jan Kus & The Slavo-Rican Assembly, a wonderful Slovenian saxophonist who arranged folk songs and originals for his new modern jazz band
  New bi-weekly performances by Asaran Earth Trio - many people have asked me when will we be singing in NY after our tour around Europe, so as we are finishing our debut recording, we will sing at Tagine every other Wednesday for the rest of our lives :)
  The concert’s title (“He will be our brother.") was inspired by a letter of a 6-year old American boy to President  Barack  Obama. In the letter, the little boy asked to welcome Omran Daqneesh, the 5-year-old Syrian boy from Aleppo- many whose image sitting in an ambulance covered in blood and dust shocked the world- into his home in the U.S. "We will give him a family, and he will be our brother”, he said. Through his heartfelt letter, this little boy has taught us to stand for humanity that unites us all and shed light on the plight of children who are suffering under constant bombardment and siege. They are indeed our brothers, and that is what propels our will to help alleviate their suffering. 

Omaran was treated at a SAMS-supported hospital in eastern Aleppo City. SAMS is a non-profit, non-political medical relief organization that is working on the front line of crisis relief in Syria and neighboring countries to save lives and alleviate suffering. In 2015, SAMS treated more than 2.6 million Syrians.  

Special performances by renowned New York City musicians, including Edmar Castańeda, Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, Kevin Hays, Gregoire Maret, John Ellis, Matt Clohesy, Magos Herrera, Vitor Gonçalves, Rogerio Boccato and Asaran Earth Trio. 

The admission is free and open to public. Hope you can join us in helping this extremely important fundraiser!


I will leave you with some memories this time, after all it's the famous Facebook's Throw Back Thursday, so here is Mildred's video for Volim Te Budalo Mala, that I can't wait to play with Mildreds https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPL80YbDKCc

I hope I will see you at one of those occasions, either here in NY or back in Croatia! 

Much love,

Astrid
