Quill of the Soul

November 1, 2015 $10.00 - $18.00

Inspired by Elie Wiesel’s “Melodies of My Childhood,” and the work of Israeli composer Andre Hajdu, Matti Kovler presents an evening that will take the Hasidic Niggun (or “chant”) as its point of departure. Incorporating instrumental music, song, and media, this performance will explore surprising parallels between Nigguns and other world incantations. The diversity of the program and of the cast will mirror the variety of faiths and ethnicities from Hindu to Sufi to Buddhist that share similar approaches to sacred song. Featured performers include Hankus Netsky, Eden McAdam-Somer, Deepti Navaratna, Parham Haghighi, Israeli musicians Yair Harel and cellist Yonatan Niv and a special appearance by WBUR’s Bob Oakes as the program’s narrator.
