RhoDeo 1123 Roots

Hello, and welcome. Just saw some fantastic display of the electric universe in working when the earth opens up its positive bowels, numerous boll-lightnings very wide arcs. So what would they have made of it 4,000 years ago ? God of thunder fighting with God from down below to prevent him from escaping and reek havoc on the people, likely.
One of the many bad raps the earth has been getting over the millenia..the sky was always wonderful and the distant rumble of thunder an assurance that god was out there watching... Little wonder then we show so little respect for the earth, and put so much faith in that little slither of air that encompasses it.

Last week we had Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares this week a band who recorded an album with them, Sarband, a group founded in 86 who has made a name for itself with an unique repertoire, it has gained an international reputation, released more than twenty CDs and performed at many international venues and festivals.

***** ***** ***** ***** *****

The Ensemble Sarband stands for connection - and, indeed, the name itself is a word which stems from Oriental music theory and denotes the improvised linking of two compositions within a musical suite. Musical director Dr. Vladimir Ivanoff, who founded Sarband in 1986, connects cultures, people and epochs, as both a scholar and a musician: His programmes unite musicians from widely different cultures and backgrounds and mediate between past and present, Early Music and living traditions.

In the world of Sarband, musicians from Bulgaria, Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq, Sweden, China, Great Britain, Japan, Italy and Germany perform together. The cooperation in the ensemble is not merely a fashionable crossover, 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 the focus of public attention, Sarband endeavours to show that music was always not mere decoration, but an enlightened means of mutual respect and can still be that in the present: an example for understanding and acceptance, a model of peace.

Programmes with Early Music repertoires link historically informed European performance with the living traditions of the Mediterranean. In cooperations with other ensembles (for example the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, King's Singers, Concerto Köln, Modern String Quartet, Mystère des Voix Bulgares), differences between cultures and religions, between old and new are investigated. Here Sarband often likes to devote itselve to the Ottoman Empire as a culturally developed, tolerant political unity of many different peoples and religions with a rich musical heritage.
