KRONOS FESTIVAL: PROGRAM #2

TUNE IN TO WATCH THE PREMIERE LIVE ON YOUTUBE OR FACEBOOK.

World premieres by Sahba Aminikia, Hawa Kassé Mady Diabaté, Vân-Ánh Võ, and Kayla Pellom (45 minutes)

Program #2 ranges widely, both geographically and stylistically. This diversity is reflected in several world premieres: Iranian composer Sahba Aminikia’s arrangement of Kavuki, a passionate Kurdish love song, sung by Shahram NazeriHawa Kassé Mady Diabaté’s delicate and propulsive ‘Dulen,’ filmed in Mali with daughter Rokia Kouyaté; Vietnamese composer/multi- instrumentalist Vân-Ánh Võ’s Adrift; and Pink Book, with poetry by Kayla Pellom and film by Miguel Navarro of Sunset Youth Services. A brief Library of Congress film about the Gullah-Geechee culture of coastal Georgia is followed by composer/trumpeter Charlton Singleton’s stirring Testimony, inspired by his childhood experience of Gullah-Geechee sacred music traditions. Frank Zappa’s None of the Above, written for Kronos, is featured in an excerpt from Alex Winter’s documentary Zappa. Completing the program are three Kronos classics: George Crumb’s ‘God-music’ from Black AngelsAleksandra Vrebalov’s My Desert, My Rose; and Vladimir Martynov‘s radiant The Beatitudes.

All KRONOS FESTIVAL programs will be available for on-demand streaming through August 31, 2021 on Kronos’ YouTube and Facebook channels.
