Co-presented by the «Music on the Edge» series of the University of Pittsburgh Department of Music
The final concert of the Beyond Microtonal Musical Festival and Symposium features oud musician Rahim Alhaj with percussionist Issa Malluf performing contemporary and traditional Iraqui music. David Krakauer and Ancestral Groove, the legendary klezmer band, closes out the festival.
This season's festival will focus on the theme of “Cultural Roots/Cultural Intersections” and will explore compelling microtonal music that travels across cultural boundaries.Through three days of concerts and symposia, Beyond will address the nature and current status of “microtonal music” and especially its relationship to World Music as well as the diversity within our own community.
