Recently featured on the BBC, and in the Christian Science Monitor, Kina Zoré is one of the hottest Afro-pop bands in Boston. Founded by Helder Tsinine, of Mozambique, the group delivers powerful African dance grooves at every show. This collective of Berklee (and NEC) graduates is also focused on social issues, preaching the importance of compassion, and action on behalf of those suffering from poverty, homelessness, and AIDS. Despite tackling such serious topics, Tsinine's music has an undeniably positive tone to it, proving that music made to move the world forward can still move people on the dance floor.
Back to the Garden: The Artistry of Joni Mitchell is a play with music and dance, written and performed by Berklee students. Considered by many to be the most important female recording artist of the 20th century, Joni Mitchell was also innovative and inconoclastic. Her music was always evolving, from deeply personal folk stylings in the 1960s and '70s into pop, jazz, and even world music. Back to the Garden is about that journey, Joni's commitment to change and her fierce unwillingness to compromise. The production is directed by Rebecca Perricone, and the music ensemble is directed by 2012 Grammy winner Terri Lyne Carrington. Please note that Joni Mitchell will not be performing.
