hi folks, mali here.

despite our very best intentions, we are needing to cancel our weekend shows in NY (Saturday in Schenectady and Sunday in Brooklyn). i still have laryngitis & speaking feels like trying to push/force/strain my voice through a thick barrier.

arrrrrrgh.

what’s almost equally annoying is that i cannot get this goddamned post to format all center, blast it!!!!!! what’s wrong with your wordpress!!!!!?!?!?!?

that being said, we have three other shows coming up, that SHOULD be far enough away for me to be well by.

these are . . . .

 …
300 years
a free, outdoor, daytime dance & music event in Sudbury, MA


this is a non-Jaggery gig, but i will be performing an original piece commissioned by, and with, Luminarium Dance, and will be singing alongside cellist Jonah Sachs, who’s collaborated with Jaggery in the past.

from Luminarium:

“Luminarium Dance Company is proud to present this year’s Cultural Community Outreach Project: 300 Years.

Outside the Box Festival

we play on

this will be an unusual set without bass or viola, but there are rumours that Tanya’s pedal harp might make another appearance . . . and seriously though, this festival is the BEST. come for the whole day & stop by before dinner.

i’m producing another ORG at Oberon:


Org: Black & White Ball

friday july 29th
@
Oberon • 2 Arrow Street • Cambridge, MA

this is the 42nd Org, and will feature Jaggery as well as Oakland duo FAUN FABLES (one of my all-time favorites), as well as many other local-and-otherwise performers riffing on the theme of opposites, contrasts, and extremes.
& most importantly, black & white attire is strongly encouraged.

tickets here

i am hoping beyond all hope that i recover my voice soon & all these shows can happen according to plan.
fingers-crossed love, & thank you for your support,
mali + Jaggery
