Duo Infinite – Soundscapes Across Cultures
28th Oct 2018 at 18:30 - 20:30| R400
A musical journey exploring the unique soundscapes of different world cultures. We begin in the land of the rising sun, Japan, with the works of Keiko Abe, deeply inspired by nature. From there we explore the dance of the Tango with its South American heritage with compositions by Piazzolla. We then find ourselves in Africa, the home of the marimba, performing works by Steve Reich as well as arrangements of traditional African songs. Our final destination will be music reflecting the oriental sounds of the Balkans and Middle East with composers such as Nebojsa Zivkovic and Avner Dorman. Join us as we embark on this cross- cultural musical adventure.
