Biography

In the world of SARBAND, musicians from Bulgaria, Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq, Sweden, Great Britain, Italy and Germany perform together. The co-operation in the ensemble is no fashionable crossover session, but conceived as a continuous dialogue on equal terms. All artists unrestrictedly contribute their native traditions, their personal histories and their own creativity to the programmes. While today the religious, economic, cultural and political differences between the Orient and Occident are in the focus of attention, Sarband endeavour to show that music was always not only mere decoration, but an enlightened means of mutual respect and can still be that today: an example for understanding and acceptance, a model of peace. The ensemble takes its audience on a journey through space and time, through religions and cultures. It is a journey, on which you can leave behind the customary ways of thinking and the traditional concert experience. You can let programs defined by tolerance, openness and profoundness enchant you, programs, in which people and cultural eras are brought together:

Programmes with Early Music repertoire link European historically informed performance with the living traditions of the Mediterranean. Here SARBAND often like to devote themselves to the Ottoman Empire as a culturally developed, tolerant political unity of many different peoples and religions with a rich musical heritage.

    Zacharyeller; why do you maintain that Corvus Corax is "hardly Medieaval"???

    Ive heard umpteen versions of Llibre vermell De Montserrat and Sarbands is by far the most impressive version.
