Jadid Ensemble at Sedbergh Music Festival

Arabic, Fla­menco and Turk­ish Fusion. Lead by Glenn Sharp Formed by gui­tar­ist and com­poser Glenn Sharp, the Jadid Ensemble are a unique group of musi­cians based in North­w­est Eng­land, who have a pas­sion for the music of other nations and cul­tures. Their train­ing in fla­menco, Indian and Arabic musics has given them a wide range of influ­ences on which to draw.

Jadid ensemble’ simply trans­lates as ‘the new ensemble’, yet the word ‘jadid’ has been extens­ively applied to Arabic musics which break away from the his­tor­ic­al tra­di­tions (or music of the ‘qadim’). The clas­sic­al and jazz back­grounds within the group allow for tra­di­tion­al melod­ic styles to be reworked into some­thing fresh and new.

On June 11, 2012 7:30 pm to 9:10 pm

At St Andrews Church, Sed­bergh.
