FESTIVAL DES MUSICIENS DU MONDE 

Evening of June 19, 2022 - 5.30 pm

Part 1: ALBUM LAUNCH | Les Arrivants
Home

Home is the story of a luminous encounter between three exceptional musicians from Argentina, Jordan and Iran. Amijai Shalev (bandoneon), Abdul Wahab Kayyali (oud) and Hamin Honari (daf) offer a subtle blend of Argentinean tango, Arabic music and Persian rhythms, inspired by traditional and contemporary music. Written between the fall of 2020 and the spring of 2021 during the pandemic, Home is there first album released with the label Analekta and is a testament to the beauty of the musical bond between the three artists. A work that reflects cosmopolitan Montreal: a playground for exchange, a music that carries love and hope. Welcome Home!

With :

Amijai Shalev (bandoneon)

Abdul Wahab Kayyali (oud)

Hamin Honari (daf et tombak)

Guests : Reza Abaee (gheychak) & Stephane Diamantakiou (double bass)

Part 2:  ALBUM LAUNCH | Ensemble Oraciones
Ottoman Splendours

Ottoman Splendours explores the music shared along an axis that stretches through time and space, linking Asia Minor and the modern-day Balkans to the Medieval Iberian Peninsula. Constantinople/Istanbul, Smyrna/Izmir, Andrinople/Edirne, Thessaloniki/Selanik, Monastir/Bitola, Sarajevo/Saraybosna… these are the principal sources that connect the music of the Ottoman era to Toledo, Cordoba, Granada, and Seville, which the Sephardim were forced to flee following the Reconquista, but whose legacy is preserved through Judeo-Spanish (spoken vernacular), Ladino (semi-sacred language), and related anonymous poetic repertoires or sacred. The repertoire brilliantly performed on this recording by Lamia Yared and the Ensemble Oraciones also reveals another influence in the shared Ottoman musical heritage, one shaped by the daily coexistence of the Greek, Turkish, and Sephardic communities, which, unlike the scholarly repertoires, was essentially transmitted by women.

With:
Lamia Yared (oud & vocal)
Didem Başar (kanun)
Omar Abou-Afach (alto)
Olivier Bussières (percussion)

Guests :
Abdul Wahab Kayyali (oud)
Sheila Hannigan (cello)
