Kan’Nal closes out C’dale’s summer series

CARBONDALE – Say goodbye to this year’s Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities’ Summer of Music.Saturday is the last chance to enjoy CCAH’s live outdoor music series. Kan’Nal, a band that played last year’s Mountain Fair with much fanfare, will entertain with its own brand of music, dance, rhythm and performance art. The free show takes place from 6-9 p.m. at the Fourth Street Plaza in Carbondale. Formed in the far reaches of the Guatemalan mountains by guitarists Tzol and Tierro, this seven-piece group boasts master hand percussionists and a didgeridoo player, and also features a revolving tribe of machete and fire dancers. The music is an acoustic fusion of Latin and Middle Eastern rhythms combining elements of the spoken word, electronica, new age and soft metallic drone.Tzol and Tierra recorded their first CD in Tierro’s hometown of Toronto and then returned to Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. There, they were joined by songwriter-bassist Rodolfo Escobar and performance artist Teresita Hinojosa. One by one, the group encountered the others destined to join them – Aaron Jerad, percussionist and solid didgeridoo player, Gilly Gonzales, whose ferocious drumming had made him a legend in Texas, and Akayate, who joined the band in Colorado. Together, they create a musical, visual and sensual experience.At the concert, Palisade Brewery will provide beer and root beer. Also, CCAH will raffle off a cruiser bike. There’s still time to be eligible by volunteering the required four hours. Call 963-1680 for information.
