As one reviewer from the San Francisco Bay Area recently said, “Serious, composed, tiny and full of music, Tien Hsieh lets her artistry on the piano express a warmth and freshness of ideas that surely none but a poet could explain.” Another reviewer said she “…delivered electrifying performances of music of monumentally heroic difficulty. Works by Messiaen, Beethoven, and finally Liszt’s Rhapsodie Espagnole were breathtaking in their technical quality and interpretive maturity.” Her Schumann Humoresque, Op. 20 was described as “Grand, relentless, madness explained, love caught through fingertips and galloping hooves trailing off to pastoral dreams.”

The Grammy-nominated vocalist, composer, and arranger Perla Batalla was born in Los Angeles. Her father was a musician and owned a popular Spanish language record store. She first gained international attention as a backup singer for Leonard Cohen who later encouraged Perla to embark on a solo career. Perla released her debut “Perla Batalla” on the Warner/Discovery label in 1994. Not surprisingly, the critics loved it, calling her singing “sublime” and her talent “stunning.” Like many original artists, Perla opted to go independent, releasing her second album, “Mestiza,” in 1998 on her own Mechuda Music label. An immediate favorite on Public Radio shows throughout the United States, “Mestiza” was selected as Best Independent Release of the Year by Amazon.com. “Heaven and Earth” followed in 2000, along with a nod to Perla as Amazon’s
Emerging Artist of the Year.

Multi-instrumentalist David Lindley performs music that redefines the word “eclectic.” Lindley, well known for his many years as the featured accompanist with Jackson Browne, and leader of his own band El Rayo-X, has long championed the concept of world music. The David Lindley electro-acoustic performance effortlessly combines American folk, blues, and bluegrass traditions with elements from African, Arabic, Asian, Celtic, Malagasy, and Turkish musical sources. Lindley incorporates an incredible array of stringed instruments including but not limited to Kona and Weissenborn Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki. The eye-poppingly clad “Mr. Dave’s” uncanny vocal mimicry and demented sense of humor make his onstage banter a highlight of the show.LEARN MORE
