BuckingJam Palace Presents: OKAN at cSpace Marda Loop

Date: Jan 24, 2024

Deadline: Mar 2, 2024 - 7:00 pm

For just shy of a decade, BuckingJam Palace (BJP) has offered an intimate, expertly curated jazz concert series hosted in a 1910 historical home in the heart of Calgary, Alberta. Starting from a grassroots level, BJP has established itself as one of Canada’s premiere jazz performance venues, hosting twelve to fourteen concerts per year and attracting ensembles from Canada, the United States and beyond. This year, they have decided to expand their concert series, as a result of their reputation to deliver excellent music to a hungry audience.

Their second ‘out of the house’ show will be presented at cSpace Marda Loop 1721 29 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2T 6T7 (formerly King Edward) on March 2, 2024 at 7pm.

Taking their name from the word for heart in the Afro-Cuban religion of Santeria, OKAN!, is a Juno-Award winning women-led ensemble that fuses Afro-Cuban roots with jazz, folk and global rhythms in songs about immigration, courage and love. You won’t be able to resist dancing along to their warm Cuban-Canadian vibes.

“Espiral, the astonishing follow up to their Juno-nominated 2019 debut, push[es] Latin jazz into new and unexpected territories...[Espiral is] lush and vibrant, urgent but specific and deeply intentional. “
