    Silence Presents duos Ha!Man and Joke Debaere & The Visit

    What a night!
    Double bill featuring two duos: South African cellist/multi-instrumentalist Ha!Man and poet/vocalist Joke Debaere as well as The Visit (who you may remember from their incredible show in June at Silence).

    Ha!Man and Joke Debaere:

    For over twenty years, South Africa’s “HA!Man” (Francois le Roux) has been performing as a spontaneous cellist, pianist and organist, building a network of support in four continents. Since 2012 he is joined by Joke Debaere from Belgium, coming from a theatre en writer’s background. Both Joke and Francois share a way of finding inspiration for their expressions in the moment, as sounds and words find each other afresh in ever changing circumstances. The “HA!Show” has moved countless people around the world, energizing local communities towards more creativity and connectivity. This unique performance might not be easily defined, but is generally deeply felt and long remembered.

    The Visit:

    The Visit, comprised of Raphael Weinroth-Browne (cello) and Heather Sita Black (voice) is a musical dialogue that transcends genres and idioms. The duo’s sound is characterized by long, tumultuous compositions reminiscent of another era, which nonetheless exude an undeniable sense of relevance and urgency.

    Combining the structures and instrumentation of classical chamber music with the intricacy of Middle Eastern and Persian music and the emotional and rhythmic weight of metal, The Visit’s lengthy, through-composed pieces conjure sonic worlds in which listeners can immerse themselves. The duo has garnered virtually unanimous praise for their incendiary live performances and secured coveted slots at Nouvelle Prague Festival in Prague, Czech Republic, Ottawa’s RBC Bluesfest, and the Royal Conservatory’s esteemed 21C Festival in Toronto. With their internationally acclaimed debut album, Through Darkness Into Light, The Visit is forging a musical path all their own.
