Immerse yourself in the mesmerising music of Albanian Saze this month, when The Saze Project pitches up at Cambridge Junction for an evening of thrilling harmonies, joyful dances and soulful laments. Saz’iso are masters of Saze, an ancient iso-polyphonic style of singing hailing from Southern Albania, which weaves intricate vocal and instrumental lines.
This hand-picked ensemble, brought together by legendary producer Joe Boyd (Pink Floyd, Toumani Diabaté, Nick Drake) and co-producers Andrea Goertler and Edit Pula, comprises some of the finest contemporary performers of Saze, opening a window into Albania’s fascinating musical traditions. The group performing includes three singers along with violin virtuosos, clarinet, llautë (lute) and dajre (frame drum). Enjoy their spellbinding sounds on 6 November; tickets are £11.
