Fourteen leading klezmer (Yiddish) and lautari (Roma) musicians, unite to lead a multi-cultural experience. Formed and directed by Alan Bern, and funded by a grant from the European Union, this performance presents a supergroup that creates powerful, deeply emotional music. Theirs is a collective sound that restores a centuries-old cooperation between two groups who inhabited the same space in present-day Moldova before being torn apart by war, the holocaust and immigration.
Featuring distinguished soloists from seven countries, The Other Europeans – which received the Best Practices in Favour of the Roma Community award from the European Commission – seeks to build new cultural relationships, mainly between two peoples often considered marginally European, but who have played a key role in creating and transmitting European musical traditions. The Other Europeans will also be featuring The Hot Club of Valletta, led by George Curmi Puse.
The Other Europeans will be held in St Agatha’s Auditorium, Rabat, on the 3rd February 2018.
