Outsinging the band

Another vibrant year at Tucson Meet Yourself!

Every performance brings its own challenges and opportunities. We often joke that instead of being Dragana* out-singing the nightingale, we are Mzekala outsinging the train when we sing at outdoor evening events in downtown Tucson. With our 5 PM time slot this year we escaped competing with the train – instead our competition was a nearby stage.

On the up side, for the first time we got a sound check before starting to sing! The TMY schedules were modified to provide more time to set up and tear down between performances which got us onstage earlier than ever.
