Since 2016, our World Music Series has been connecting cultures and inspiring conversations. This season the series continues under a new banner of Global Conversations with the rhythms and sounds of Syria, Mali, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, and Canada.
Nishtiman, Kurdish for “homeland,” brings together Kurdish musicians from Iran, Iraq, and Turkey for a tribute to the Syrian city of Kobane. Canadian Indigenous artist Cris Derksen opens with her singular take on the cello.
