Saturday, 24 MayBOW & BELLOWS -Violin, horn and accordion duo


BOW & BELLOWS are a stunningly versatile violin, horn and accordion duo. They play and sing their own compelling arrangements of Klezmer, Balkan and Gypsy music with occasional sorties to savour the musical traditions of other countries.

Sally Davies and Martina Schwarz met in 2000 whilst providing the music for a touring theatre production and formed the duo soon afterwards. Since then they have had a steady stream of engagements both, for private functions and in a wide variety of venues, ranging from cafes, folk clubs, embassies, festivals, to the National Theatre Foyer and the Purcell Room.

Saturday, 10 MayDON KIPPER- Klezmer, Gypsy Jazz, Turkish Fasil, Greek Rembetika..

don kipper

Don Kipper is a London-based ensemble dedicated to interpreting music of Eastern origin. Their repertoire includes Klezmer and Gypsy Jazz but ranges to Turkish Fasil music and Greek Rembetika. Whilst respecting the ancient origins of these forms Don Kipper love to arrange the music in new ways and also compose original music which fuse many styles and combine elements from a variety of backgrounds. The musicians in Don Kipper themselves have diverse musical origins stretching beyond the scope of the band’s repertoire – such as Brazilian Samba, Celtic and West African music – and their arrangements are a testament to the band’s belief that a fundamental energy connects many so named “world” and “folk” styles. Don Kipper are also keen collaborators and have worked with a host of performers ranging from Tribal Belly Dancers to Hula-Hoop artists and Singers from all over the place…

Sunday, 13 April“NEW TURKEY” by Murat Germen


Artist- Photographer Murat Germen presents his recently published monographic book “New Turkey” at MostArt Centre. The book Edited by Dr. Necmi Sönmez, art historian and curator, this book titled “New Turkey” is a comprehensive survey of Germen’s artwork from 2000 until present day. The book is supplemented with essays by Murathan Mungan, a leading Turkish author and includes an interview between Barbara Hofmann-Johnson, the curator of Photographische Sammlung Köln, and the artist, as well as personal anecdotes. Designed by Yesim Demir and published bilingually in Turkish and English, this is his first monograph.

Through his photography, Murat Germen dealt with the recent economic boom in Turkey and its consequences by focusing on various stages of this development, such as urban transformation, industrial growth, social and physical construct, art and capital relations, excessive investment on highways and finally the Taksim Gezi protests and resistance that constituted a milestone in late Turkish history. He produced challenging visual experimentations with his internationally acclaimed series “Muta-morphosis” and continues his artistic practice on urban photography with his recent “Facsimile” series. While Muta-morphosis maximizes the urban content by shrinking very long panoramic photos into a photographic frame with a typical ratio, Facsimile instead extends certain parts of cities to attract attention to particular dynamics among various urban components.
