About this show
Fresh from the acclaimed release of their new CD, Like A Bridge, world jazz ensemble
LUA HADAR with TWIST presents the premiere of their new Live Concert DVD, Like a Bridge, a 70-minute Live Studio Concert directed by Emmy award-winner Lawrence Jordan, shot at the legendary Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California. The premiere screens at San Francisco’s Historic Balboa Theater on November 15 at 7:30pm for one night only with the cast and crew on the scene signing DVDs at a wine reception after the show.
In addition to the Like A Bridge Live Studio Concert, the premiere includes a 25-minute documentary, Building Bridges, on the creation of the Bridges Project and the origins of the band and its signature “cosmopolitan jazz” sound. Songs of hope, courage and our common humanity in seven languages (English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese and Malagasy) weave the theme of world unity throughout this passionate, fun and eclectic performance by vocalist Lua Hadar and her band of top international musicians.
Lua Hadar with Twist performs international standards with a different 'twist' on style; they also present both original and rarely performed songs, in several different languages. The band's new DVD and CD use the Bridge as a metaphor for the connections we can make with each other to foster world unity and harmony. The CD Like A Bridge, recorded at the same sessions with the DVD, is receiving critical acclaim and airplay on over 100 radio stations, across the USA and in Canada, The Netherlands, Germany, England and Brazil.
