Leonard Cohen Koans is the spectacular musical celebration of the spirit of enigmatic Canadian icon, Leonard Cohen, and his astonishing 60+ year career spanning literature, art and music. Splicing songs with his poetry and prose, ali & the thieves weave a new pathway into your experience of this glorious Poet of the Holy Sinners. Part-concert and part-homage, Leonard Cohen Koans is performed by incredibly versatile Sydney vocalist Ali Hughes supported by her masterful jazz/blues band The Thieves. Led by highly sought after musical director Daryl Wallis, Ali & The Thieves perform 16 of Cohen’s undeniable standards and lesser known gems, including his ode to Janis Joplin “Chelsea Hotel #2”, “Sisters of Mercy”, “Anthem” and “If it be your will”, and his mythic masterpiece “Suzanne”. In its seventh year of presentation, this 90min concert style cabaret has hooked audiences from Sydney to Noosa, and from New York to Dublin. And now more than ever, with the recent passing of the legendary and enigmatic Leonard Cohen, Ali & the Thieves gives you another chance to savour the creative spirit with which he so exquisitely courted the world, in Leonard Cohen Koans.
