Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year and one filled with peace, we need it as ever.
For our first concert in 2010 at St Ethelburga's starting on Friday Jan 22nd.
A change from what's listed in our music brochure, we are delighted to welcome back the exciting Indo-Arab-flamenco group;
Alcazaba (flyer attached)
a group without boundaries, blending music originating in the ancient
sultanates from Andalusia through Mesopotamia to northern India. These
diverse musical traditions are linked as all these areas were once under Muslim
rule and were therefore influenced by each other. As well as this, the gypsies
of Andalusia originally came from northern India. The members of Alcazaba come
from extremely different backgrounds but are united by their passion for
musical adventure and exploration. The strength of the group lies in the way
Flamenco, Arab, Indian and styles are seamlessly and convincingly joined to
create a unique and vibrant transcultural sound. Moreover, Alcazaba's music is extremely accessible and appeals to
people from all age groups and backgrounds.
