Makam New York captures the vibrant spirit of musical makam traditions of Greece, Asia Minor, Balkans, and the Levant. Internationally acclaimed musicians explore the timeless beauty in the artistic expression of Turkish, Greece, Sephardic Jewish, and Armenian composers, as well as their own pieces.
Ross Daly, Ahmet Erdoğdular, Yurdal Tokcan and Ömer Erdoğdular captivate their audiences with interpretations of centuries old pieces, their own contemporary compositions, and improvisations on ney, oud, tarhu, Cretan lyra and voice.
These world-renowned masters of makam music are in NYC for the annual 5-day intensive Turkish Music Institute Workshop, taking place at Columbia University, May 2-6, 2014, organized by Makam New York, Inc.
