7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy

The tour of the Munich ensemble JISR in South Asia is, in many ways, about the exchange of musical cultures. Mohcine Ramdan's music project is a melting pot of diverse musical styles and traditions. The repertoire of musical influences is considerable: from Arabic classical music and poetry to African Gnawa grooves and German Krautrock, Balkan, Jazz, Tango and Andalusian Flamenco. A snapshot of a musical culture that breaks the boundaries between different musical genres and fills the imagination, unconventionally instrumented and with a great longing for new and unexplored realms of sound.

From the Isar to the Ganges , JISR // BRÜCKE plays music on its way like a caravan moving in the moonlight, passing through the musical cultures of the South Asian continent. The audience will embark on a multi-faceted sound journey through Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and India. Local artists from classical music traditions and alternative experimental scenes will join and enrich the ensemble with melodies and instruments.
