DOMINIC MANCUSO & ORI DAGAN – FUNDRAISER FOR IRCPA
January 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST$20
Join us for an evening in support of the International Resource Centre for Performing Artists (www.ircpa.net) featuring music by two IRCPA members: Dominic Mancuso and Ori Dagan
After 25 years committed to a vision influenced by his culturally diverse world, Dominic sees himself sitting at the table with the 21st century and the global village. His resume takes in several CDs, as well as several written scores for TV, films and theatre performances, numerous artistic collaborations and a great number of live shows in Canada and abroad. After actively promoting Comfortably Mine, his Juno and Canadian Folk Music awarded ‘World Music Album of the Year’, he realized there was an incredible chemistry forming amongst his touring band: Tony Zorzi on guitars; Paco Luviano basses; Chendy Leon percussion; Jerry Caringi B3 organ & accordion; Johnny Johnson saxes & woodwinds.
Award-winning jazz singer, songwriter and recording artist Ori Dagan is taking jazz to new and exciting places. His rich baritone voice and impressive abilities as an improviser produce an instantly recognizable sound. Dagan’s third recording, “Nathaniel: A Tribute to Nat King Cole” won the Silver Medal for “Best Album” at the Global Music Awards and charted in the Top 50 on JazzWeek. In 2018 Ori Dagan headlined the TanJazz festival in Tangier, Morrocco, showcased at Austin’s Elephant Room at SXSW and performed at South Korea’s first ever public diplomacy week.
