    Live performances from:

    Yaz Fentazi and Robyn Hemmings

    North African/Middle Eastern Jazz /Blues/Classical

    Yaz Fentazi and Robyn Hemmings create for their audience a magical sense of ‘travelling’ in their minds with their colourful and rich music that draws on the vast traditions of jazz, blues, classical and North African/Middle Eastern music.

    The Mysticism of Anatolian & Alevi Folk Music

    Turkish folk music

    In this performance, musicians Huseyin Kaplan and Dursun Can Cakin will be joined by an ensemble featuring Cem Tuncer (bass), Erdal Unsalan (bağlama /saz), Gizem Altinordu (percussion), and Serkan Cakmak (kaval flute) as they perform traditional music from Anatolian and Alevi deyiş folk music.

    The bağlama or saz (a plucked folk lute) is considered to be an emblem of Anatolian culture. The name comes from the Turkish “bağlamak”, “to tie”, referring to the frets tied to the neck of the instrument. Alevism is a belief system found mainly in Anatolia, parts of the Balkans and Central Asia. Alevi religious services, known as cem, include spiritual exercises incorporating elements of deyiş (oral statements) and semah (ritual dance). Both are accompanied by sung mystical poetry and the bağlama.

    Jhuma Limbu

    Jhuma Limbu is a brilliant Nepali singer and researcher. Over the last decade Jhuma has trained in classical and western musical traditions and is passionate about researching the folk music of Nepal, in particular the Limbu Tribes from far- eastern regions.
