While we're still unable to welcome you into our house, we're excited to present another series of WCL House Concerts with a nod to the centuries-old tradition! We've invited some of your favorite artists from the Philly area, many of whom have played our stages countless times over the years, to share their music virtually. These intimate livestream concerts will premiere on our YouTube channel, directly from the artists' homes to yours.
WCL House Concerts will be FREE to watch, but we hope you'll consider making a donation to support independent live music. Click "Add to Cart" to RSVP for a reminder email with the stream link, where you can also make an optional donation of any amount. All donations will be split between the artist and World Cafe Live.

A treat for Mother's Day. Keeping up with a tradition spanning over a decade, MINAS returns to WCL virtually with a special concert to be aired atnoon on May 9. The concert will also be available for viewing the entire day. Based in Philadelphia for a great part of their career, internationally acclaimed Minas has been on the forefront of world music and Brazilian Jazz in the Northeast for the past 30 years. Led by the couple Orlando Haddad and Patricia King, Minas has recorded and released 6 CDs of original music. They are currently finishing a new project, "Beatles in Bossa",featuring 14 songs by The Beatles, reimagined in a Brazilian music setting.Drawing from Brazilian traditions of samba, bossa nova, baião, axé, combined with American jazz, blues, and folk, as well as classical music, Minas mixes north and south seamlessly. Patricia on piano and vocal, Orlando on nylon-string guitar and vocal, complement each other and create a mood that only a lifetime of performing together can attain. Their music is inspiring, warm, their vocals sensual, their instruments percussive, and their melodic lines are jazzy.
