Jong Metropole will be touring The Netherlands this summer with a programme under the direction of Tom Cohen in which music from the Western music library merges with music from, among others, the Arabic tradition. In addition, a new composition by Kika Sprangers, the Rogier van Otterloo Award winner from the Jong Metropole 2021 programme, will also premiere.
Tom Cohen, classically trained and steeped in the music of North Africa and Arab countries, combines Western musicians and Arabic virtuosi to create a new musical language, 'Levant Music'.
In Jong Metropole, talents from both the classical and jazz departments from the Dutch conservatoires, come together, in te upcoming summer joined by students from the world music department of Codarts Conservatory Rotterdam on ud, tar, zurna and duduk.
East meets West is made possible by contributions from the Keep an Eye Foundation and the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.
