My favorite World Music group, THE BEST WORLD MUSIC GROUP IN HK, ReOreintate is performing in Asia Society, Admiralty on 19 October Protected content . If you longed for something different and exotic, come to this one. We can make an outing out of it, with dinner afterward. Let me know.
"ReOrientate is a new, unique Hong Kong-based collective that is rapidly gaining acclaim for its accessible, modern re-imagination of complex flamenco forms. Drawing upon Oriental musical traditions from Taoist, Sufi, Hindu, and Buddhist roots as well as modern dance pop, ReOrientate is immediately familiar yet defies categorization. Join ReOrientate on a journey that weaves together harmonies through humanity’s diverse heritages, back to the spirit of the Spanish flamenco gypsies’ original roots near present day north India between western China and eastern Pakistan, where their epic migration began along the Silk Road, then both the European and African sides of the Mediterranean. The musical migration from Andalusia all the way back to Asia stands for ReOrientate’s committment to transcending communication barriers, in a shared search for the intangible relationships that emerge from human universals."
Hope to see you there..
