Nihan Devecioglu // Voice & Electronics
Sasha Agranov // Cello & Electronics
In this musical and poetic journey, the Turkish singer Nihan Devecioglu and the Israeli cellist Sasha Agranov, create a magical fusion of their soundscapes.
They create a personal and unique sound, mixing experimental, classical, traditional Turkish, Jewish, Middle Eastern music, ancient music with own poetry in Turkish and Hebrew.
In this concert, besides Baroque music you can hear the traditional music of the Sephardim, songs from Italy, Greece and Armenia, and Portuguese fado. The viola da gamba, that most feeling of instruments, is grounded here by the traditional music of the Mediterranean. Together with guitarist Xavier Díaz-Latorre, Friederike Heumann and Turkish singer Nihan Deveciogˇ lu explore new forms of expression in these Mediterranean worlds of sound.
