The singing art is sea foam,
The graceful movement
comes from a pearl
somewhere on the ocean floor.



Pearl Beneath the Sea is a meditation on movement as symbolic of universal harmony – the movement of melody, the circling dance of a whirling dervish, and the floating inks in water marbling. The artists explore the junction of traditional and contemporary aesthetics through compositions and improvisations old and new, accompanied by dance, and visual art of ebru projected, as it complements the music. This innovative project draws attention to the multicultural Ottoman heritage capable of transcending contemporary conflicts through art.
