Concert in London 28 April
The Merlin and Polina Shepherd quintet take us on a journey which both crosses borders and takes us deep into ourselves.
They bring together Klezmer, the music of Jewish Eastern Europe, with Demotika and Fasil from Greece and Turkey, as well as tunes from Hebraic, Yiddish and Russian traditions. Combining these elements and their rhythms, reminiscent of the shtetl and the souk, with new repertoire, they present a programme of music old and new which will captivate by its technical brilliance, warmth and exuberance.
Hackney Proms are relaxed, family‐friendly concerts for adults where children are welcome.
