Event Notes

× This concert is part of the Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra (VICO)'s annual Global Soundscapes Festival (June 16-27 at various venues). The focus this year: the musical instruments and traditions of the Middle East. The VICO hosts special guest soloists from Azerbaijian, Iran and Montreal, alongside a who’s who of musicians from Vancouver’s vibrant world music scene, for a series of concerts, workshops and other events. It's a rich smorgasboard of sounds and rhythms, offering many unique opportunities for connection across borders, continents, cultures and centuries.

In MAQAM TRADITION, visiting artists Elshan Mansurov (kamanche) and Elcin Naghiyev (tar) from Azerbaijian perform a fiery programme of traditional Middle Eastern music, accompanied by Hamin Honari (tombak) and Saina Khaledi (santur), with vocalist Jamal Kurdistani.

Running time is approximately 2 hours 30 minutes, including intermission

Presented by Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra
