A thousand and one Arabian notes

Lyra and Persian percussion

Creation 2020

Concert
1h30

avec Quatuor Debussy, Keyvan Cheminari (zarb), Bijan Cheminari (daf), Sokratis Sinopoulos (lyra)

With the desire to explore the Thracians, a civilization that extended from the Balkans and Greece, through Bulgaria, Turkey and Iran, the Debussy Quartet joins forces with Sokratis Sinopoulos on the lyra, a small bowed instrument that dates back to the Byzantine era, with the Chemirani brothers on Iranian percussion instruments, the daf and the zarb. This is a trip to the heart of the Orient and much more than a flashback to the Persian era. Together the musicians embrace a civilization which is open to the world in an evening inspired by many traditions and sounds from the past.
