Black Music Renaissance 3 goes BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Kelvin Sholar presents Kalavan Quartett

(c) David Beecroft
 
In cooperation with award-winning Black American pianist Kelvin Sholar we present the third installment of BLACK MUSIC RENAISSANCE: a four-day powerhouse event with the goal to celebrate the common threads of rhythm, harmony and melody that unites all music of the African diaspora with music from the Americas and Eurasia.
 
Kelvin Sholar is a musician that knows no stylistic boundaries. He has won over ten awards for music and appeared on over one hundred recordings, in wildly ranging styles. Sholar is featured in live performances by Stevie Wonder, Kevin Saunderson or Carl Craig, Qtip, Nigel Kennedy and many others; not to mention his acclaimed work with original music, or the music of Jeff Mills, Rob Hood, Earth, Wind and Fire- and many others.

Kalavan Quartet is a group of international artists from USA, Greece, Armenia and Turkey. They focus on the common thread of melody, harmony and rhythm that connects the music of the Balkan mountain region (including Bulgaria, Northern Greece, Armenia, Romania and Turkey) to the music of the African diaspora in the Americas and Europe. This quartet plays music from Kelvin Sholar's original twelve movement suite "The Kalavan Suite", as well as, Balkan classics rearranged by female percussion master Burcu Coşkun, classical music re-imagined by Armenian bassist/composer extraordinaire Nesin Howhanessijan, and original balkan flavored compositions of Greek wunderkind Melina Paxinos.

Line Up:

Melina Paxinos - Alto Sax, Soprano Sax
Kelvin Sholar - Piano, Electronics
Nesin Howhannesijan - Bass
Burcu Coşkun- Drums
