Debby Teason and Sarah Heath, who perform as Mimosa Steel Pan Duo, will bring their music to Best Video on Wednesday, Dec.19 PM. Come enjoy an island vacation in the heart of Spring Glen! The music starts at 8 PM; there is a $5 cover.
Playing hand made tenor and double second steel drums from Trinidad and Tobago, their intriguing arrangements draw from a range of popular music genres, including traditional island, reggae, Brazilian, rock and latin favorites. If you have never heard these amazing contemporary pitched instruments, created from recycled 55 gallon steel drums, you will be amazed! And Michael Bergman, local doctor and drummer, will be there to add some live percussion with his udu, a Nigerian hand drum. Sit back and listen to the unique, joyous, relaxing notes of these instruments, and hear some of what they can do.
Mimosa has performed at the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, the Green Street Arts Center, Café 9, and at schools and libraries in the area. They are also play every month at Zafra Cuban Restaurant and Rum Bar in downtown New Haven. Visit their Web site to learn more.
