„Babylon Orchestra´s first concert is a musical tour around the world – from Syria, and going through the Mediterranean countries to Europe.
As a very personal answer to an ever changing world we founded the Babylon Orchestra at the beginning of the year. The goal of the orchestra project is to enhance the musical exchange between the Orient and Occident.
Under the musical leadership of Mischa Tangian, musicians from Syria, Iran, Russia, Italy, Greece and Germany present modern and classical pieces by the Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum, the Lebanese composer Ziad Rahbani and the Iraqi Oud player Naseer Shamma, amongst others. Original creations, arranged and composed by the orchestra members, are also at the core of the ecclectic programme. Besides the violin, horn and piano, instruments such as the oud and the qanun, the oriental lute and zither respectively, will be played.
