LADOM ENSEMBLE
World Fusion Workshop

Monday, March 19
1:45-3:15 pm, Dal Arts Centre 121

Ladom Ensemble combines piano, cello, accordion, and percussion in a unique blend of acoustic chamber and world music that is passionate, sophisticated, and wild. Their all-original repertoire incorporates inspirations from Argentinean tango, Serbian folk and dance traditions, Persian classical repertoire, as well as music from the Classical (Bach, Prokofiev), and progressive rock worlds (Radiohead). Ladom doesn’t pretend to represent any one tradition, but rather expresses an authentically Canadian fusion. Ladom’s musical identity is combined from many sources and reflects a beautiful new world with a Western classical toolset. “Elegant and contemplative… rocking and fiery!” – Errol Nazareth, CBC. The ensemble is touring Atlantic Canada with Debut Atlantic and will perform on Saturday, March 10 at the Lilian Piercey Concert Hall.  See http://www.ceciliaconcerts.ca for details.
