Event at Chan Centre

Time Price
Tues, 8pm - 11:59pm
$10.00 - $14.00

On the occasion of The 23 April NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY and CHILDREN'S DAY in Turkey, The Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Turkey & Turkish Consulate General in Vancouver presents ARPANATOLIA - Contemporary synthesis of the Turkish Folk Music

Unique melodies of ancient times and modern interpretations: Arpanatolia will meet the music lover in UBC Chan Shun Concert Hall on Tuesday April 24, 2018 at 8:00 pm.


The harp, lute and many wind instruments have been the dominant instruments over the centuries and still are in Turkish (folk) music. Arpanatolia brings together singers and musicians who delve into that tradition to create a new, contemporary synthesis of Turkish folk music. The modern harp stands side by side with traditional instruments like the lute-like cura and flutes such as the kaval, ney and sipsi.

Singers and musicians create a new synthesis of traditional Turkish folk music. In addition to original melodies imbued with ancient resonances, Arpanatolia delivers new interpretations: hybridization at its best.

$2 from each ticket sold will be donated to Children Hospital Foundation.
