    Nonesuch Events for the Holiday Weekend of November 27–December 1

    Nonesuch Records wishes everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving in the United States and a fruitful Black Friday in the days ahead. (Not to mention a Happy Birthday to Randy Newman on Thanksgiving Day!) Remember: all currently available CDs, LPs, and DVDs in the Nonesuch Store are 34% off the standard retail price (pre-orders excluded) as part of the store's sixth anniversary sale, now through the holidays. In addition to these discounted items, the Nonesuch Store also has more than 800 albums available as high-quality 320 kbps MP3s, including classic recordings no longer in print, and, for digital audiophiles, scores of FLAC lossless files of our latest releases. Of course, the focus for the holiday is on family, and while the Nonesuch staff is spending time with ours, there are a few concerts in the coming days to keep in mind as you're enjoying yours as well.

    Devendra Banhart and his band—Noah Georgeson, Matthew Compton, Josiah Steinbrick, Todd Dahlhoff, and Rodrigo Amarante—conclude their three-week Latin American tour with a performance at Teatro Ecci el Dorado in Bogotá, Colombia, on Thursday. Banhart released his Nonesuch debut album, Mala, earlier this year.

    Banhart heads next to Australia for the Byron Bay Bluesfest at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm in April, as well as side shows at the Factory Theatre in Sydney and Prince Bandroom in Melbourne. Fan pre-sale for the sideshow tickets begins this Sunday; click here.

    Bombino continues the latest leg of his world tour at the Thunderbird Café in Pittsburgh tonight, before heading to Canada for shows in three different cities: at Measure in Toronto on Thursday, at Neat Coffee Shop in Burnstown outside of Ottawa on Friday, and PHI Centre in Montreal on Saturday. He returns to the US for a performance at The Sinclair in Cambridge on Sunday.

    The 14-city North American tour, which features songs from his recently released Nonesuch debut album, Nomad, makes additional stops in Providence, Philadelphia, and DC, before culminating in New York City with a concert in Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall on December 6.

    The Nashville Scene, reviewing Bombino’s recent set there, writes: “We were mesmerized pretty quickly thanks to the heartbeat made by the hand-drum patterns, while Bombino's gentle melodic playing, circling around the beat, revealed the deep roots of Delta blues.” The review continues: “Though the guitar wizard showed meditative restraint during the acoustic set, he was ready to set off some fireworks once the electric guitars were strapped on, playing furiously and pouring sweat, but always playing with and reacting to the band, never setting himself apart.”

    Jeremy Denk joins the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra (SPCO) for three performances of Brahms’ Piano Quintet in F-minor and Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25 in the Twin Cities region this weekend: at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in Saint Paul, Minnesota, on Friday and Saturday, and at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi on Sunday afternoon.

    In advance of the three-concert residency, Denk spoke to the Minneapolis Star Tribune about his latest Nonesuch release, a recording of J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations, and his program choices for the upcoming concerts. “The darkness and the storm of the Brahms,” he says, “is a good complement to the complicated sunniness of the Mozart.”

    Jeremy Denk joins another Midwestern orchestra—the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra—to perform the same Mozart Piano Concerto No. 25 in Ohio next weekend.

    Brad Mehldau and Mark Guiliana round out their 12-city Mehliana fall tour of Europe at Karlstorbahnhof in Heidelberg, Germany, tonight, and Moods in Zurich, Switzerland, on Friday. The Guardian, in a four-star review of the electric duo’s recent performance at the Barbican in London, says “the pair were stirring the new brew of improv, 1970s dance-funk, and drum'n'bass with which they've enthused club audiences this year.”

    After performing together for several years, Mehldau (on Fender Rhodes and synthesizers) and Guiliana (on drums and effects) release their debut duo album, Mehliana: Taming the Dragon, on Nonesuch Records on January 21. The CD and vinyl edition of the album are now available to pre-order in the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of the album track “Hungry Ghost.”

    Mehldau offers a solo piano performance at the National Concert Hall in Dublin on Sunday, before rejoining Guiliana for a set at the Highline Ballroom in New York City on January 22 to celebrate the record’s release.

    Rokia Traoré closes out her North American tour with two performances in Canada this weekend: at the Royal Conservatory’s Koerner Hall tonight in Toronto, and Club Soda in Montréal on Thursday. The tour features music from her latest Nonesuch album, Beautiful Africa, released earlier this fall.

    In advance of her performance in Toronto, Traoré tells NOW magazine: “I never had the intention of creating a new style, but I’m not from the traditional school of Malian music, so my sound developed from a real mix of things.” Read the full article at nowtoronto.com.
