Quick note here about a show you’ll want to add to your calendar: Colombia’s Marta Gómez is coming to Burlington for a single show with the UVM Lane Series – Friday evening the 25th at 7:30.

You might have heard her recently as a featured guest on Idan Raichel’s new recording, Within My Walls, and she’s touring now with new songs she’s written for her latest release, Musiquita.

Born in Bogotá and educated at Berklee, her voice is sweet and the music – warmly polished and frequently shaped with a jazz dialect – still remains firmly rooted in the folk traditions and everyday experiences of the people in her native Colombia.

I can’t wait.
