While Kurilpa Hall remains closed we are continuing to stream Foco Nuevo via our Jumping Fences Facebook page. We are pleased once again to feature contributions from international guest musicians. We're also glad to have James Harper back on deck in the drummer's chair!

This month we bring you performances from Yeni Turiño from Cuba, and Patricio Anabalón from Chile.

We met Yeni at the 2018 'Ella y Yo' Festival in Havana, which featured women singer/songwriters (trovadoras). Yeni was the youngest performer at the festival, yet had the confidence and skill of an accomplished musician and, like the rest of the audience, we loved her performance.

Patricio toured Australia in 2006 and gave several concerts in Brisbane. We have wonderful memories of performing together at one of those concerts and remember the tremendous sensitivity and warmth in his music.

Once again we are thrilled to present performances from these wonderful musicians we have had the pleasure of knowing.

Don't miss out! Go to our Facebook event page to register (click 'Going', and you will receive a notification when the streaming starts.

See you online!
