Melange – World Music
Friday 13th April 2018
Melange seamlessly blend music from North Africa, the Middle East and Mediterranean, incorporating both traditional and original material into a dynamic and lively on-stage show. Formed by cellist Shirley Smart, after 10 years in Jerusalem studying and playing the music of the region, Melange is a true reflection of modern cosmopolitanism, comprising musicians from Greece, Spain, Morocco, Iraq, Italy and the UK.
Recent performances include the Songlines Encounters Festival, World Village Festival, IGNITE series at the Royal Albert Hall, and recently on the BBC’s World on 3 Sessions. Their second album Via Maris featuring a blend of original and traditional material was released on 2016 to great critical acclaim.
“An ensemble that works really well together, and their dynamism makes not just a great and ambitious exploration of Mediterranean musical culture, but also a thoroughly enjoyable listen…” Songlines
