World hip-hop shows set

Performing Arts Center, Winthrop Barn are venues

— Nomadic Massive, a world music/hip-hop group from Montreal, Canada, will perform in the Omak Performing Arts Center and the Winthrop Barn.

The Omak Performing Arts Center Foundation Board show will be at 7 p.m. Jan. 31 in the arts center, 14 S. Cedar St. The Methow Arts show will be at 7 p.m. Feb. 1 at the barn, 51 state Highway 20.

“These musical nomads represent an open-minded hip-hop (style) which finds its inspiration in the traditions of the past, combining live instrumentation and a wide variety of vocal styles,” foundation board spokeswoman Vera Zachow said.

The group has performed internationally.

“This multilingual, multicultural super-group has become synonymous with energetic and crowd-moving live shows,” she said. “The group has also left its mark internationally, initiating social-cultural exchanges with like-minded artists from Sao Paolo, Brazil, and in Havana, Cuba.”

Admission will be charged for both shows.

The Omak Performing Arts Center Foundation Board plans another show, with harpist Bronn Journey and his wife, Katherine, at 7 p.m. March 14. She is a vocalist.

The Journeys performed last Christmas in Leavenworth, and have performed in 44 states.

“The harp is often called ‘the instrument of angels,’ and Bronn’s amazing versatility and skill on this ancient instrument, along with Katherine’s radiant voice, will transport you to the gates of heaven itself,” Zachow said.

Admission will be charged.
