The Persian ney is a flute with 5000 years of history, and its sound might make the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Why? Maybe it’s because there’s just something special about an instrument that has been handed down for hundreds of generations. Maybe when you hear it, you can feel the depth of its story. Maybe your body intuitively knows that connecting intimately with the ancient past is powerful, beautiful, important.
Join us on Wed, May 4, for a deep dive into four ancient musical traditions completely new to the Groupmuse ecosystem: Hindustani Indian, Persian, Turkish, and Greek. Ethnomusicologsts and masters of performance Maz Karandish and Alexander Karvelas will play on sitar, tabla, ney, oud, vocals, and more, with educational introductions and story-telling around each tradition.
Add in a beautiful view of the sunset from the Oakland hills and it’s bound to be an amazing evening. So reserve your spots now!
