Building Bridges through Music
This event is a unique musical encounter & collaboration, bringing musicians from different backgrounds and genres together. Six accomplished musicians from diverse traditions will be staying together for 10 days, as residential artists at the Centro Incontri Umani in Ascona. They will be rehearsing, sharing their compositions, exploring, and creating new stories and sounds, before performing together for the audience at different venues in Switzerland.
This year the musicians are (l. to r.) Arezoo Rezvani (Iran - santur), Matthias Loibner (Austria – hurdy-gurdy), Olena Yeremenko (Ukraine – nyckelharpa), Gaurav Mazumdar (India – sitar), Paolo Rosetti Murittu (Italy – frame drums), Sara Käser (Switzerland - cello)
This project is run through the Foundation Centro Incontri Umani, Director Angela Hobart. The musical leader is Gaurav Mazumdar and the organizer is Johannes Rühl.
