About the Event
Fresh from an enthusiastically received performance at the 2022 Guelph Jazz Festival, Collateral (Sam Shalabi, guitar/oud, Norm Adams, cello and Tim Crofts, piano) are back for their first performance in Halifax since 2017! This improvising trio combines jazz, classical, North African, punk and noise music to create a collision of sounds that you won't want to miss. Collateral will lead you on a journey through a rich landscape of music and expression.
This performance will be opened by JOYFULTALK //\\ NICOLA MILLER duo.
Tickets on sale at the doors: $25 or pay what you can
"Collateral was born from a suddenlyLISTEN concert in 2014. I had invited Sam Shalabi to Halifax, because of his connections to Egypt and a desire to expand the series beyond just European sounds. On the ride from the airport, he told me he had grown up entirely on Prince Edward Island, and my curatorial world was shattered…. But, it wasn’t of course. Sam brings a completely personal sound to everything he touches! Those sounds are born of late 70's Island punk rock, Arab Spring period Cairo, and of course, his many years in the rich music scenes of Montréal. Collateral crams Tim’s jazz tinged, and my unavoidably classical extended sounds, with Sam’s jagged, tonally rich North African language. It’s a collision and a blend! And it’s really fun to listen to."
