Okbari Middle Eastern Ensemble

Friday - December, 01 @ 8:00pm

The Okbari Middle Eastern Ensemble presents music from the richly varied contemporary and historic cultural traditions of the Middle East including Ottoman Turkish Classical compositions, rural Turkish folk and devotional songs, Arabic classical and folk music, and dance music from the Armenian and Turkish immigrant diasporas.

The Okbari Middle Eastern Ensemble appears as a duo, trio and a quartet, and has performed at venues throughout New England, the East Coast and the Midwest, including prestigious institutions such as the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, Alwan for the Arts in NYC, and enjoyed the honor of being invited to perform at the 2009 Chicago Arabesque Festival. The Ensemble also performs with world renowned Armenian-American clarinet virtuoso Mal Barsamian and has shared the stage in Istanbul, Turkey with the Kemani Serkan Ensemble and the Rumeli Meyhane Fasil Ensemble.

Okbari Middle Eastern Ensemble is Amos Libby (oud, vocals), Eric LaPerna (riqq, daff, tabla and nay), and Duncan Hardy {qanun}.
