Petr Cancura

Born:

Born in Eastern Europe, brought up in the wilderness of the Great White North, and later thrust into the urban Jungle of New York City, it is no surprise that Petr Cancura’s musical pallet is as wide as it is. A saxophonist with a vast knowledge of Jazz, Balkan, African and American folk traditions, Petr performs on banjo and mandolin as well as on the medium format black & white camera… all of which influences each other into a Roots Song & Improvising music machine with a visual sensibility. Petr, now based in Ottawa, Canada, is the Program Director of the Ottawa Jazz Festival, two-time Artist-In- Residence of Carleton University, and was the Musical Director of the National Arts Center’s Crossroads Series, reimagining the songs of current Canadian Songwriters for an all-star jazz cast
