24chambers – Sanem Kalfa & George Dumitriu
The next 24chambers edition takes place in Amsterdam at march 31 with Sanem Kalfa, voice, cello and electronics & George Dumitriu – viola, guitar and electronics.
Kalfa and Dumitriu bring ‘hypnotic, part acoustic and part electronic songs full of Turkish longing, Brazilian melancholy and Persian wisdom.’
This Turkish vocalist and Rumanian violist are both living in The Netherlands. The duo is known for its intense performances. In 2010 Sanem Kalfa won the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition, when the jury was led by Quincy Jones. George Dumitriu, the so-called ‘sorcerer’ of the viola plays in various ensembles in the fields of improv/jazz and contemporary classical. Their album DANCE was inspired by Sufi poet Rumi.
24chambers editions are free but you need to request an invitation for our guestlist. NB: we only have a limited amount of tickets, so don’t wait too long. The guestlist is open for everyone – you don’t need to be a member of 24classics (although members are first in row). On the day of the concert we’ll send you a text message with the exact location in Amsterdam.
