Music By The Sea presents Ensemble Diaspora
2 September 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST$25
Ensemble Diaspora is a culturally diverse World music ensemble that originally came together at in 2013.
The repertoire includes melodies and rhythms from diverse traditions as a departure point for an improvised modal music that reflects the rich cultural diversity and fertile creative space of Australia.
The set includes dynamic ensemble, duo and solo pieces – closely profiling the respective traditions of its members – including Tibetan, Celtic, European, Iraqi, Iranian and Zimbabwean music as well as original compositions reflecting diverse modalities.
The group symbolises the ongoing wave of human migration or diaspora that has taken place across the world in our present and previous eras due to a broad range of situations, whether natural or socio-political. Most importantly, it symbolises how cultural diversity can and should be a force for good, via shared creativity, cooperation, empathy and enterprise.
