Itinerant music

Myriad encounters

KiyaTabassian_web“As musician-inventors and musician-travellers, we endlessly replay our utopias, with Babel as backdrop. The territory to explore is infinite: cultures and memories whose lines we like to shift so that they finally converge. Furthermore, we make migration and the mixing of cultures our territory. Is it perhaps our early exile that led us to return to the source, to follow the tracks of our predecessors, to tirelessly search for creative allies? Whatever it is, this awareness of belonging to several space-times is as basic to us as respiration, as inspiration.”

Constantinople is the story of a musical ensemble that chose the journey as its cornerstone—geographical journeys, but also historical, cultural and inner—and to seek inspiration from all sources, to aim for distant horizons. Drawing inspiration the ancient city illuminating East and West, the ensemble, founded in 1998 in Montreal, was conceived as a forum for creation, encounters and cross-fertilization. Over the past decade, the group has developed over 35 new works and staged nearly 132 cities in 25 countries.
