ENSEMBLE BAKLAVA – MUSIC FROM AROUND THE MEDITERRANEAN

United by a love of Mediterranean music, Russell Harris, Nick Millington, Howard Frey and Julia Thomas perform Turkish, rembetiko, sephardic, Egyptian, Spanish, Italian, medieval and traditional music melded with improvisation and original material. They perform a wide range of songs and dances, both ancient and modern on traditional instruments: oud, mandolin, bouzouki, bagpipes, concertina, baglama, spiked fiddle, a wealth of hand percussion and voices.
