Art is the bridge between the physical and the spiritual, it allows us to learn and conjure memories, to transmit subtle states of being and meanings that words seldom manage to convey. It has the power to reflect back to us or project onto us any state of being our imaginations and psyches can manifest. It is the ultimate connective tissue, a unifier, individually, collectively, universally.
Art is as fundamental to human existence as food, or shelter. It can inform us of our place in the world. Remind us of our failures, or announce our glories in a high-blown bombast.
Like anything, it can be harnessed for good, evil or the maintenance of the status quo. But that like needs not further exploration.
Jamari Espresso House has organized a series of live music events on Sunday afternoons from 1-3 pm, throughout the winter months of 2019, highlighting some of the best local musicians Ottawa has to offer, from avant-garde jazz to progressive chamber folk, to Manouche swing, in a warm, cozy, and intimate space. Along with our delicious coffee, wholesome, comforting food, and house made snacks.
The invitation is open, to cultivate community, togetherness, and warmth.
