New York native Marika Hughes
is a cellist who was raised in the classical tradition. Today, her music fuses that history with sounds and ideas hailing from folk, jazz, blues, and soul, plus a sprinkling of the avant-garde.
Marika has held a monthlong residency every January at Barbès for a few years now. This year, she has chosen to act as more of a curator and is inviting artists who have been involved in her Looking Glass Arts project
