Booksigning performance

Today we performed at Cynthia Elizabeth Sulley's double booksigning at the Ladner Pioneer Library.

We played a short set of our African tunes, as well as a couple of djembe (drum) jams. What a fantastic audience! The place was packed with standing room only!

One of her new books is Colour Beautiful Life Sunny, a sequel to her 2008 novel Child of Where Two Oceans Meet. - See more at: http://www.delta-optimist.com/news/ladner-writer-to-hold-double-book-launch-at-local-library-1.898672#sthash.JKxu3iZm.dpuf

One of her new books is Colour Beautiful Life Sunny, a sequel to her 2008 novel Child of Where Two Oceans Meet. The follow up novel is again set in Sully's home country of South Africa. It is set after the apartheid era and sees the return of main character Fleur Rowin Elizabeth Eugene, along with her family.

Her other new release is titled Happiest Splash. "I wanted to do something very different," says Sully, describing the book as a compendium with "all sorts of things in it." There are short stories, poetry, a recipe section and more. There's a lot of humour in the book but it has some serious material as well, she explains. Proceeds from both books go to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada. Sully has family members who suffer from Crohn's.

WHAT FANS ARE SAYING

“We have received your new CD and want to thank you.  We love it!  I forgot what a beautiful voice you have. Just so you know, I don't think you sound like anyone.  You are just your own amazing artists.  But for the sake of the request I suggest Angus & Julia Stone.  I think people who enjoy them will enjoy you.”
Melissa Matthews, British Columbia

“Thank you Lark & Kris for your inspiring, beautiful music! With much appreciation…"
Karen McCombe, New York

"The cord that THE BALLAD strikes in my heart is one of music that brings out a deep sense of community, people saying: Hey, this is us. …. The human spirit that will never be snuffed out – no matter the adversary."                                                    Samm Musoke, Nova Scotia

"I fell in love with Lark and Kris’s music the first time I heard it. It has an uplifting, inspiring quality which as a musician and songwriter I appreciate. Subsequently after my grandson was born I started playing him songs and he loved them. We had many a good time dancing to songs and once he was walking and talking he would request the music again and again and loves to dance and/or drum along. Thank you Lark and Kris for your gift of music to the world."                                    Suzanne Lichau, Oregon

"Dear Lark and Kris,
 
I'm writing on behalf of the South Fraser Gogos (stephenlewisfoundation.org) to thank you so much for your fantastic contribution to our Potluck Evening. You made the Grandmothers welcome quite spectacular and one I'm sure they will remember.

Everyone enjoyed the rest of your music and singing and seeing everyone up dancing is a sight I'll always remember. Wishing you all the very best,                       Jesse Pringle, Go Go Grannies Co-coordinator, British Columbia

"Kuimba weaves a magical spell with their enchanting melodies, mesmerizing harmonies, and penetrating lyrics. The music is at once universal and uniquely personal . . . the musicians share themselves with their audiences in an intimate and moving manner."                                       Julia J. Heydon, PhD. Music, Former Music Director, Oregon Shakespearean Festival
