Pop legend Dionne Warwick, winner of five Grammy Awards, finds her way to the San Jose Center for the Performance Arts as part of the Sister Cities International Annual Conference. Warwick's iconic career started in 1968 with her first Grammy win for "Do You Know Your Way to San Jose" and went on to include 75 hit songs and more than 100 million records sold worldwide. And her career is still going strong: Earlier this month Warwick released a star-studded duets album titled Feels So Good, featuring collaborations with some of today's greatest artists, including Jamie Foxx, Billy Ray Cyrus, Ne-Yo, Gladys Knight, Cee Lo Green and Cyndi Lauper. Hear her sing some of her most memorable tunes, including "Walk on By," "Alfie," "I Say a Little Prayer," "I'll Never Love This Way Again," and many more. Learn More
Conceived from vocalist Ravid Kahalani’s vision, Yemen Blues mixes music of Yemen and West Africa with contemporary grooves from funk to mambo and the deep soul of old chants. Conjuring up a rich and diverse aural palette with the use of percussion, oud, horns, and strings, Yemen Blues coexists in both the past and present, at once timeless and modern. The collective is a true collaboration of top master musicians, its core including Ravid Kahalani, Omer Avital, Itamar Doari, Rony Iwryn, and Itamar Borochov.
National Geographic _described Yemen Blues as an ensemble combining traditional Yemenite melodies and instruments – including all sorts of percussion – with jazz, blues, and funk to come up with a sound that’s like nothing we’ve ever heard before. If Blind Willie Johnson hung out with North African trance musicians or if Stevie Wonder studied Yemenite chants, it would sound like Yemen Blues. Witness the energy and experience the fireworks produced by some of the most talented musicians from Tel Aviv and New York. It’s an oasis in the desert – a breathtaking musical journey.
