Soulful melodies and surging rhythms transport you to far-away lands. Allow yourself to be transported in the flexible and crisp acoustics of Zankel Hall, the ideal venue for a variety of musical encounters. A Syrian clarinetist and his band perform virtuosic music inflected by Western classical idioms and jazz. A transformative Kurdish singer showcases her culture with soulful interpretations of traditional tunes. Your pulse will also quicken when an Afro-Brazilian master fuses ritual dances and martial arts to his scorching music.
