KIM SANDERS and BOBBY SINGH – JUGALBANDI and MUHABBET (unplugged)

World Music masters Kim Sanders and Bobby Singh will be exploring music from Turkey to India in an unplugged concert at St Luke’s Church Hall in Enmore on Sunday September 4.

The “jugalbandi” (literally “entwined twins”, if you are in India) or “muhabbet” (a relaxed chat, if in Turkey) is a musical conversation between two solo musicians. The programme will be a developed and extended version of a programme first presented in the Festival of Asian Music & Dance at Sydney Opera House in 2002.

This concert will feature Hindustani Classical rhythms, Turkish Classical makams, aetherial Sufi meditations and strange originals. Some pieces will be very traditional, and some will extend the boundaries somewhat. As well as traditional Turkish Classical (and Sufi) ney flute, Kim will be playing Turkish mey (similar to the Armenian duduk) and kaval, a wooden flute found in Turkey and the Balkans, and a hybrid Bulgarian- Turkish- Balinese- Australian bagpipe he calls the Ganesha.

Kim and Bobby have been performing together for more than ten years in Kim Sanders & Friends and other contexts, and have developed the kind of rapport that leads to all kinds of unexpected delights in the improvised parts of the music.

Be prepared to enter deep space!

Kim and Bobby have been playing together for many years and have recorded together on Kim Sanders & Friends CDs “You Can’t Get There From Here” and “Bent Grooves” (see Kim’s CDs page)
