Korhan Erel will be playing his first-ever concert with the amazing Cyminology as one of the guest musicians on April 20 in Allerheiligen-Hofkirche in Munich. The other guest musician is Martin Stegner, violist extraordinaire, who has been playing and recording with Cyminology for a long time.
The concert is almost sold out, so if you are in Munich and want to see this great band, click on this link for tickets.
The ECM band Cyminology combines Persian poetry and chamber-esque contemporary music: East and West, old and new in beautiful synthesis. The subtle yet dynamic, softly-pulsating music takes its cue from the sound of the Persian language presenting poets such as Rumi, Hafis and Khayyam.
Cymin Samawatie’s compositions combine elements from different kinds of music, including chamber jazz, open improvisation, modern composition, impressionism and minimalism.
Cyminology creates a space, in which post-migrant European culture is expressed in music and poetry. It is an adventurous experience to listen and to watch the sensitive interaction within the Berlin based quartet (founded 2002).
