Musique, horizons lointains (Autumn 2021 )
The Centre des musiciens du monde (CMM) announces Musique, horizons lointains : a series of free in-person concerts (reservations required), Sundays, September 12 to October 31 2021 at 7 p.m., at Église Saint-Enfant-Jésus du Mile-End. These events provide an opportunity for the CMM to reconnect with its audience in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, for a truly sensorial excursion, in a format that respects public health measures.
The Centre des musiciens du monde (CMM) will present eight evenings devoted to the rich musical traditions of Iran, Peru, Brazil and Argentina, during which we will introduce several musicians who are masters of their art. An invitation to explore faraway musical lands that will move and amaze newcomers, as well as confirmed music-lovers.
“Each musician will share the essence of the tradition they have mastered, along with their pursuit of new horizons, taking us beyond geographical and temporal borders. New ways of listening to instruments such as the setar, charango, piano and bandoneon allow us to more fully experience the pulse, evolution and universal values of each tradition.” – Frédéric Léotar, Executive Director, CMM
