Chandana, Blues Sisters, Show Brazil, and African Shows For You

Hey Music Lovers!

I am going to have to reformat this weblog because so many gigs are happening. So hopefully in a week or two, this will be easier. For now, use these links to go to the musicians whose gigs you are interested in.

There's alot going on this week: Chandana, Blues Sisters Jam, Eduardo Mendonca, Paula Maya, Jovino Santos Neto, Hidmo Restaurant, and Maya Soleil

Chandana will be singing a few songs in both the Indian and Jazz styles this Saturday night at Cafe Bella in Downtown Seattle and 8:30pm. It will be a short set, as Chandana is actually singing some jazz for the first time (but she sure doesn't sound like it's the first time!) Yours truly, the Yogster will accompany her on electric keyboards along with sax man Mike Deasy. Bop, Ballads, Indian Pop and Raga will be on the music menu. Caffe Bella 2621 Fifth Ave., 206-441-4351

A Blues Jam with the Red Hot Blues Sisters and Friends.

I'll sit in with the Blues Sisters at Legends in West Seattle on Friday night starting at 8:30. I'll bring sax man Mike Deasy, and Ahmed Tarawally of the African Knights may show up for a song or two also. Plus plenty of the Blues Sisters and their friends, all of whom are accomplished blues veterans. This is going to be fun!
