PeopleMusic came about to try capture the fun and sadness of life through music. A celebration of Brazil, Africa, the Balkans, the old worlds and the fearless adventure of new music. The group''s music has some of the rawness of world music and the energy of the New York jazz scene. As an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, Petr Cancura has learned from a smorgasbord of jazz and world music. The Czech-born, Ottawa-raised, New York-based saxophonist brings his highly-appraised quartet from Brooklyn to your home. He is joined by some of the finest musicians, whose individual accomplishments are topped only by the groups’ sense of adventure. Drummer Richie Barshay (Herbie Hancock Quartet, Chic Corea, Fred Hersch, Kenny Werner Trio) lends his uplifting sense of rhythm, Garth Stevenson (George Garzone, David Tronzo, Jason Marsalis) plays bass and Chris Bartos (Sarah Harmer, Ennis Sisters) rounds out the group with his haunting melodies and evocative feel. With the intent to express the emotions of life through music, the group''s positive energy shines with every note.
