"An artist who reflects a positive vision of our cultural future."Toronto Star
Multi-award-winning musicians Layale Chaker, Kinan Azmeh, and Dinuk Wijeratne come together to create highly distinctive music that draw from a confluence of cultural influences. Chaker, a Lebanese violinist and composer, Azmeh, a Syrian clarinetist and composer, and Wijeratne, a Sri Lankan composer, conductor, and pianist, are each known for their inventive and genre-defying work. For this transporting concert, Middle Eastern and South Asian music mix for a soulful program inspired by the idea of what ‘home’ means to us all.
Drummer Nicholas Halley and bassist Tom Easley join to create a unique five-piece band.
This concert is preceded by a talk with Eshantha Joseph Peiris at 7:15PM in the RBC Cinema. Free for all ticketholders.
