Jadid Ensemble at Sedbergh Music Festival

Arabic, FlaĀ­menco and TurkĀ­ish Fusion. Lead by Glenn Sharp Formed by guiĀ­tarĀ­ist and comĀ­poser Glenn Sharp, the Jadid Ensemble are a unique group of musiĀ­cians based in NorthĀ­wĀ­est EngĀ­land, who have a pasĀ­sion for the music of other nations and culĀ­tures. Their trainĀ­ing in flaĀ­menco, Indian and Arabic musics has given them a wide range of influĀ­ences on which to draw.

ā€˜Jadid ensembleā€™ simply transĀ­lates as ā€˜the new ensembleā€™, yet the word ā€˜jadidā€™ has been extensĀ­ively applied to Arabic musics which break away from the hisĀ­torĀ­icĀ­al traĀ­diĀ­tions (or music of the ā€˜qadimā€™). The clasĀ­sicĀ­al and jazz backĀ­grounds within the group allow for traĀ­diĀ­tionĀ­al melodĀ­ic styles to be reworked into someĀ­thing fresh and new.

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

At St Andrews Church, SedĀ­bergh.
