Space is the Place: An east west music dialogue
Saturday 15 June 2019, 7:30 pm
The Boghossian Foundation introduces Lagrange Points, an organisation that allows Arabic culture to enter into dialogue with Western culture and connects both cultures and people through music, books and art. A cultural exchange in all openness and with respect for diversity.
Space is the Place: An east-west music dialogue brings together different musical cultures in a unique musical project. The Syrian singer and percussionist Khaled Alfahez from Aleppo, integrates the Sufi tradition in his musical work. He enters into a dialogue with the Dutch singer and improviser Sanne Rambags, the Dutch guitarist Bram Stadhouders and the Belgian bassist and composer Nathan Wouters. Bram and Nathan create their own electronic and jazzy space, leaving room for the cultural influences of the singers. Khaled and Sanne take the audience to another space, inspired by old Dutch poetry and the Sufi tradition of Aleppo.
An introduction to original compositions and a unique musical experience, thanks to the dialogue between east and west.
