The Pains of Growing Tour
with Special Guest Ryland James


2018’s “Best New Artist” Grammy Award Winning Canadian singer/songwriter and Def Jam Recordings artist Alessia Cara emerged onto the music scene in 2015 with her first release, Here, a global anthem that grabbed the world’s attention when it garnered over 500,000 streams on Soundcloud in its first week. Here went on to become Spotify’s Most Viral Song of 2015, selling over 3 million copies. Her five-track EP, Four Pink Walls, soon followed, leading to the release of her RIAA platinum debut album KNOW-IT-ALL (November 2015). Alessia’s multi-platinum #1 hit single of 2016, Scars to Your Beautiful, was her gut-wrenching take on female identity, on body image and on deleterious behaviors in the name of beauty. Stay, her #1 hit with Zedd, sold over 2 million copies and received Song Of The Summerraves. Also in 2016, Alessia lent her voice to How Far I’ll Go, penned by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the official song for Disney’s animated film Moana. The 4x-platinum 1-800-273-8255, her historic collaboration with fellow Def Jam artist Logic, was one of 2017’s landmark singles with over 4 billion streams worldwide, contributing to her being named the most-streamed new female artist of 2017. Growing Pains (June 2018), was the prelude to Alessia’s second album, her critically acclaimed THE PAINS OF GROWING (released in November), which included the follow-up single releases Trust My Lonely and Out Of Love.

The Peking Acrobats
Wednesday, January 22, 2020, 7:30pm
Presented by Granada Theatre Concert Series

For the last thirty two years, The Peking Acrobats have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs and display their technical prowess at such arts as trick-cycling, precision tumbling, juggling, somersaulting, and gymnastics. They push the limits of human ability, defying gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. The Peking Acrobats are often accompanied by live musicians who skillfully play traditional Chinese instruments; the time-honored Chinese music coalesces with high-tech special effects and awe-inspiring acrobatic feats, creating an exuberant entertainment event with the festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival.

Impossible Tour

A one-of-a-kind mash-up of classical, hip hop, rock and R&B with a message, the classically-trained string duo Black Violin – Kev Marcus (violin) and Wil B (viola) – fuses the sounds of today with classical virtuosity. Or, in the words of Black Violin, “It’s a party, man.” Adding DJ SPS and drummer Nat Stokes to the lineup, the group has collaborated with the likes of Kanye West, 50 Cent, Aretha Franklin and Tom Petty. They’re bringing their chart-topping, genre-bending, stereotype-busting sound on the Impossible Tour, proving that there are no limits to what we can achieve, regardless of circumstance.

Jon Batiste and Stay Human

Presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures
Back by Popular Demand!

With his “virtuoso chops and capacious personality” (The Boston Globe), Jon Batiste “whips up excitement” (The Wall Street Journal) as the leader of the rip-roaring jazz-roots collective Stay Human, igniting the music world – and your TV – as Late Night with Stephen Colbert’s house band. The Juilliard-trained jazz and R&B multi-instrumentalist has forged his own artistic path, from his particular brand of New Orleans-infused funk and pop to his eloquent solo album Hollywood Africans. Following his life-affirming Santa Barbara debut last season Batiste is back with the full force of his band, pounding the keys in a high-octane night of pure musical joy.

Tickets may also be available from UCSB Arts & Lectures at (805) 893-3535 or online through their website.
