Nice Verdes

Nice Verdes are Sally and Jesse, who have been performing together since first meeting at a peace march in Vancouver in 2003. Nice Verdes have toured and performed over the years, continually honing their craft relentlessly. They have toured the east and west coasts of Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Guatemala; and this is their first European tour.

The music of Nice Verdes is uplifting, sunny and takes a fresh approach to original world folk music, with inspiration from Cuba, Colombia, Africa, Europe and Latin America. Nice Verdes plays combinations of Cuban tres (a three-stringed guitar), accordion, ukelele, and guitar, accompanied by vocals.

They have always been drawn to collaborating with artists from all countries, and they enjoy most of all the parties and festivals that celebrate a strong sense of community and equality in diversity.
