At CAFE OTO

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, Ulaş Özdemir and Arash Moradi bring together the sacred musical traditions of Turkey’s Alevi-Bektashi-Qizilbash and Iran’s Ahl-e Haqq, along with wider influences from Turkish, Kurdish and Persian folk music cultures in a colourful and energetic synthesis. The collaboration has been conceived in a spirit of unity between the two different traditions within the context of their shared mystical music, played on the bağlama and tanbur, instruments considered sacred amongst both Alevi-Bektashi-Qizilbash and Ahl-e Haqq.

Really pleased to make 15 more Incus titles available in the digital shop this week – all of which are currently unavailable as CD releases from the Incus headquarters. The lot includes Bailey’s duo with Haino Keiji Songs, his brilliant duo with cellist Tristan Honsinger Tristan, and Eugene Chadbourne & John Zorn’s In Memory Of Nikki Arane. More to come from Incus soon.

New shows announced this week include the first show in the new Kammer Klang season, and a debut OTO show for American drummer, percussionist and synthesizer player, Joe Gallivan.

Full listings and all new shows below. We look forward to seeing you here.
