    Afiara: Live at the Drake

    From Reich and Schumann to an arrangement of Common’s “Be” featuring MC epideMIC and spine-tingling music from Paul Schrader’s cult film Mishima, Toronto-based Afiara Quartet are thrilled to be bringing their classical/hip hop/minimalist/anything goes show to the Drake Underground. They’ve got the classical cred - they’ve played venues like Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall; toured Asia, Europe and North America; and regularly win international awards - but they’re equally at home working on an upcoming project for Luminato that will see them touring Europe with DJ Kid Koala this summer. Totally genre-defying, this is a show for the Toronto kids who’ve grown up in a city that embraces the TSO like it embraces EDM. The Afiara are delighted to welcome the talents of guest artists Carlie Howell and Graham Campbell.
