Searching for Home in the Karmic Blue

Ottawa Chamber Music Festival, Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre : Sanctuary , Ottawa, ON

Middle Eastern and South Asian folk and classical traditions intertwine as composer-improvisers Kinan Azmeh and Dinuk Wijeratne take us on a musical search for home. Music for clarinet, piano, tabla, percussion, and string quartet, with Nick Halley, Shawn Mativetsky, and Quatuor Danel will define this evening’s cultural crossroads.
