Petr Cancura's PeopleMusic

Label: RootsToBoot Music
"Cancura’s sunny manner is infectious. It rubs off on the audience and his band mates… it shines through his music. Even his darker compositions like Ballad, a mysterious, slow-moving chamber piece that was among the evening’s highlight, still somehow seemed joyful.”
- Doug Fisher, Ottawa Citizen

The Petr Cancura Quartet’s PeopleMusic project came about to capture life in music; a celebration of Brazil, Africa, the Balkans, the old worlds and the fearless adventure of new music. The group plays music with the rawness and the energy of the New York jazz scene.

The Czech-born, Ottawa-raised, New York-based saxophonist Petr Cancura brings his highly-appraised quartet from Brooklyn to Victoria, to share an evening of adventures in music. He is joined by some of the most in-demand musicians, whose individual accomplishments are topped only by the groups' energy. Drummer Richie Barshay (Herbie Hancock Quartet, Chic Corea, Kenny Werner Trio) lends his uplifting sense of rhythm, Garth Stevenson (George Garzone, David Tronzo) plays bass and Chris Bartos (Sarah Harmer) on guitar and violin rounds out the group with his haunting melodies and evocative feel.
