At the Crossroads of the Mediterranean
This concert program is a musical voyage into the heart of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern musical traditions. Featuring some of the most pre-eminent heirs and creators from these lands, the concert presents ancient sounds and modes intertwining with new music composed by the virtuosos of the ensemble.
The meeting between the 6 master-musicians from Lebanon, Iran, Turkey and Canada between strings and vocals, goes back in time to evoke the beauty of being. It is a joint passage through the common sites of the imagination, like a long breath before the inexorable march of the world and time.
Without doubt, this concert will transport you to a soul-stirring world of peaceful musical dialogues.
