Fans of acoustic music will want to hear Talia Ceravolo, who will be performing Wednesdays in May at the Turquoise at Café-Bar Europa beginning at 5 p.m. The venue has recently updated its schedule with music often available twice a day on their patio or indoors.

Ceravolo has a confident performing style with a commanding voice that reminds me a bit of Sarah McLachlan in places. An above average tunesmith, songs like her debut single, “If You Follow Me,” are full of wonderful melancholy hooks, and in this case, lush orchestration. For these sets, Ceravolo performs solo, but the songs are just as powerful, the mark of a good tune.

We’re thrilled to have Gabriela kick off the weekend every Friday from 5-9pm!  Read more about this talented artist below:

Singer/songwriter Gabriela (Gaby) Aparicio who was born into a South American family & culture says that growing up in Florida, her weekend nights were spent listening to tango, Uruguayan folk music, the Beatles and old Motown hits while my parents danced folklore. “spent listening to tango, Uruguayan folk music, The Beatles, and old Motown hits”  while her parents danced.

The image her account evokes is apropos of what I have experienced listening to her perform with her rhythm section “La Buena Onda” , aka the tour de force percussionist Kimo Shim, at The Turquoise Europa Café.  The music I’ve heard them perform there is as enchanting and seductive as an Argentinian tango and as fun as any of your favorite Motown hits.  Whether she’s wrapping her lush voice around you with a soothing Sade ballad, or drawing you to the dance floor with one of her upbeat originals backed by Kimo’s infinite, underground beats, you’ll be seduced into singing along at your table or groovin’ on the dance floor with the relaxed, fun crowd she draws.
