muziek - Ode to Istanbul and Oriental Time

25 juni 2018

Oene Van Geel Carte Blanche with the program Ode to Istanbul 
& New European Ensemble feat. Geert Mul with the program Oriental time.

Istanbul has many faces. For decades it has been a melting pot of cultures and today modern life and old traditions are different sides of the same coin. In its music you can find anything ranging from the old folkloric music of the Constantinople times to the latest developments in the use of electronics.
The heart of the performance will be a new composition by Oene van Geel. It has poems about Istanbul by Orhan Veli Kanık, Nazım Hikmet, Sanem Kalfa and Ümit Yaşar Oğuzcan at its core.

It makes it even more special the Oguz Buyukberber and Sanem Kalfa really know the city from the inside.

Sanem Kalfa – vocals
Oguz Buyukberber – clarinets
George Dumitriu – viola/ guitar
