Expired Avataar

  • Avataar
     Wednesday, Jun 26th, 2024
     8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Avataar’s sound & original compositions are informed by artists including Shakti, Jarrett, Oregon, Jan Garbarek, Jobim, Robert Glasper, Snarky Puppy, Kenny Garrett and Ornette Coleman, and at their core are imbued with an intent toward political and social change and a spiritual focus that transcends the sound. While Avataar’s debut album, Petal, explored the evanescence of human life and was a call for a return to spiritual connectedness, Worldview attempts to also present a musical commentary on the state of our world, on the pandemic and on the inability of our leaders to lead with integrity, honesty, and compassion. Avataar has been making original music together for over 10 years and continues to develop an international reputation with an impressive record of tours and performances at festivals and venues throughout South Africa, Western Canada, and Ontario.
