For the long dark night of Winter Solstice, disappear into the music of the mountains of the Mediterranean, across Afghanistan to the foothills of the Himalayas.
Discovering the musical connections that span continents, master dilruba player Kirpal Singh Panesar
, Greek composer, sound designer and lyra player Dimitris Menexopoulos, and highly talented Rabab player Saphwat Sinab create an immersive concert specially designed to celebrate the ancient spirit of this time of year.
Rooted in their respective folk music tradition, this new music looks to connect and explore the similarities and uniqueness through rhythms and melodies that transcend human boundaries to connect our spirits to others in distant lands.
With visuals and a soundscape evoking the cold clear nights of winter mountains, the campfire, and an infinity of stars, this soulful and stirring concert welcomes in the return of the light.
