Canto can have that magical effect on a listener – even one who cannot really follow Italian
February 8, 2016
That Toronto has been brimming with musical talent has been the city’s worst-kept secret. The malaise that has affected the arts in the face of sports madness is yet another reason why the most magical artists the city has pass like ghostly ships in the night. It is not an anomaly; it’s just a kind of apathy for the beauty of art that exists in a beautiful city that the entertainment of the night – any night – is consumed and ruled by Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment and the Blue Jays in fall, winter and summer. The legend of those sports teams gobbles up money – and in a twist of conspiracy theories all my own – and most of the government money as well, leaving the arts scene strangled and suffering. That such beauty in artistry should survive in Jane Bunnett, Hilario Durán, Michael Occhipinti, Emilie-Claire Barlow and – among a long list of artists that include Daniela Nardi is, indeed a minor miracle.
