Friday June 24, 8 pm
KATAJJAQ meets KHOOMEI (Inuit & Mongolian throat singing)
featuring Oktoecho (Montreal) & @Orchid Ensemble (Vancouver) & @Anand Avirmed (Mongolia)
This concert is a hybrid that crosses between Inuit, Mongolian, Chinese, Japanese, European, and Arabic music and it will be the first time katajjaq (Inuit throat singing) and khoomei (Mongolian throat singing) are presented together on stage in BC.
The Juno nominated Orchid Ensemble is made up of Lan Tung on the erhu/Chinese violin, Dailin Hsieh on the zheng/Chinese zither, and Jonathan Bernard on percussion.
Oktoécho is a collective of musicians from diverse cultures and at this concert, it will be represented by Inuit katajjaq performers Lydia Etok and Caroline Novalinga, multi-instrumentalist Michel Dubeau (flutes, shakuhachi, duduk, clarinet, bagpipe), and Moroccan oud player Khalil Moqadem.
Special guest Anand Avirmed will perform khoomei and play the morin khuur (horsehead fiddle).
Saturday June 25, 8 pm
MUSIC FOR THE YANGQIN (hammered dulcimer)
featuring Yaping Wang (Taiwan/France)
Virtuoso Yaping Wang makes her Canadian debut with a diverse program. Her solo work employs electronic processing and improvisation on the traditional Chinese hammered dulcimer. Wang’s compositions for jazz trio with Vancouver trumpeter John Korsrud and bassist Tommy Babin draw influence from her Taiwanese roots. She will also perform with harpist Albertina Chan and erhu player Lan Tung in the delicate and graceful work “Scented Flowers” by Vancouver composer Mark Armanini.
