Çeşni Trio - Original music inspired by the Ottoman Art Music Tradition

Tev Stevig - tanbur, fretless guitar, alterna-telli
Michael K. Harrist - contrabass, yayli tanbur, ney
Fabio Pirozzolo - darbuka, riq, bendir, cajon, tombak, armenian dhol
We've been working on new material and rearranging old pieces.  We will include Ross Dalycompositions in this months program.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWJoGzYKqhQ

************

At turns romantic and elegant, vivacious and playful, the music of Çeşni Trio is grounded in the flavors (çeşniler) of Turkish makam music while remaining deeply personal and contemporary. The ensemble guides the listener from dove-tailing contemplative melodies to odd-metered tunes that throw caution to the wind. A well placed breath opens the ceiling, an evocative ornament opens the heart.

Stevig and Harrist first met in Istanbul in 2010. Back home in Boston, MA they found themselves playing and studying Ottoman art music together in Orkestra Marhaba. As an idea for a trio began to take hold, the group found kinship with Pirozzolo and Çeşni Trio was born.

A modal music tradition, Türk sanat müziği (Turkish art music) developed in the urban areas of the Ottoman Empire and has a history of over 500 years. The tradition includes a wide range of repertoire, composers, and practitioners. Çeşni Trio draws from this great tradition and the more modern stylings of contemporary musician-composers such as Erkan Oğur, Ross Daly, Murat Aydemir, and Efrén López.
