Reflections X Orhan Özgür Turan & Maher Mahmoud

  • KUNSTHAL AARHUS 13 J. M. Mørks Gade Aarhus C, 8000 Denmark (map)

Det turkise telt and Kunsthal Aarhus invites you to join us the 9th of December for Reflections - an exclusive own production!

As a part of the European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017 finale, det turkise telt collaborates with Kunsthal Aarhus to present the concert Reflections:

- Blue Foundation
- Orhan Özgür Turan & Maher Mahmoud
- NordSang

Through three days of production these different artists will unify their sound and create the music we will hear on December the 9th. On this evening Kunsthal Aarhus will be divided into three different stages. Each of them centered around one of the three musical sources. The unified sound however, will be present wherever one choses to experience the concert from. This invites the audience to explore and move about in the different corners of the soundscape, while constantly being in the midst of the whole. The same concert will be presented two times.

Reflections is about the intersections of music, traditions and people. We are mirrored in our city, in our surroundings and reflect the communities we are a part of. With Reflections we celebrate this meeting and experiment with the possibilities of the concert. Swing by Kunsthal Aarhus on the 9th of December and take part in a total-concert, a musical journey and a unique evening.

With an impressive track record of projects and collaborations behind them, Orhan and Maher always carry with them a strong musical curiosity.
