Crossings: Songs from The East is a cross-cultural collaboration presenting traditional and improvised music spanning the Greek, Kurdish, Arabic and Persian traditions. This is an exciting coming together of local Sydney-based musicians from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, drawing both from their own musical heritage and their contemporary experience of multi-cultural Australia. A rich program of song from both the
folk and classical traditions of the cultures of the Eastern Mediterranean and Near East regions, taking the audience on a musical passage from the Mediterranean to Mesopotamia.

The five musicians featured, including first-generation Australians of Greek, Kurdish, Iraqi and Persian origin, share a common musical language – a language anchored in centuries old systems but at the same time contemporary and inspiring of innovation. And this is exactly what audiences can expect from Metin Yilmaz, Mustafa Karami, John Robinson, Dimitri Koubaroulis and Imad Rahem on their respective instruments: kaval (wooden flute), daf (frame drum), oud (fretless lute), kanun (plucked lap zither), voice and violin.
