Lina Tsiva, Greek flutist and Maria Rosaria Della Ragione, italian clarinetist started to play together in 2011, when they met each other in Utrecht conservatory. Both attending the master of music in chamber music, they starts to research about the repertoire written for flute and clarinet and when the notes starts to coming out like one warm and colored sound then it is clear that this combination can actually works. Through their concerts they want to allow people know about the music and the colors that the flute and the clarinet together can express. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kariatides-Duo/138201313022218

Home Of Art!

On December 23, 2014, my partner and I opened our Pop Up Art Gallery Home Of Art in the Museum District of Amsterdam, this is the reason I haven’t been blogging much lately.

 

What’s new?
After these hectic, but inspiring months, we have decided that Home Of Art will become a permanent Art Gallery in Amsterdam, something I could not have imagined a year or even some months ago!

 

What do we (aim to) do?

  • Home Of Art is an Art Gallery in the Museum District of Amsterdam.
  • Home Of Art is a non for profit organisation and aims to present and promote talented artists.
  • Home Of Art offers a platform for artists that create diverse art forms in the broadest sense possible.
  • Home Of Art combines art with a cozy atmoshphere and unique cultural events such as intimate concerts.

 

 

 

A request:

Journey of a Clandestine Instrument @ Home Of Art

Journey of a Clandestine Instrument

Descendents of the Guitarra Renacentista or Renaissance Guitar can be encountered far & wide, from the islands of Hawaii in the form of the Ukulele to the Charrangos of the altiplanos in Peru & Bolivia. As a son of the Renaissance Guitar brought to the lowlands of Colombia & Venezuela in 1498, the Cuatro is an instrument which has undertaken an evolutionary journey only recently to have started as of the end of the 90’s.

The barriers keeping the Cuatro isolated from the rest of the world have been overcome as construction & teaching methods have developed into more elaborative & artistic productions. Luthiers are no longer confined to local one dimensional materials & musicians are no longer dependent on learning how to play from locals presenting themselves on street corners. It’s confinement and lack of exposure in both construction & teachings is why this unique piece was considered as a clandestine instrument. This gives those who truly dominate this instrument a unique quality as they have learned with very little direction from documented works.

The Cuatro is distinguishable through the characteristic grin of it’s fingerboard, which makes the instrument an attractive challenge for constructors of instruments. In our possession are two exceptional examples of this instrument being the traditional Cuatro made of Indian Rosewood handcrafted to perfection by Jose Manuel Baritto as well as it’s modernized brother the Electric Cuatro being a child of Roberto Bonaccorso made of mahogany, pau amarillo & zebra wood. All instruments are a subliminal marriage of woods and possess incredible characteristics only possible to attain by great luthiers.

We have the privilege of witnessing the evolution of a clandestine instrument and present it on an international stage. We are privileged to present Darwin Rafael Medina Fonseca as a cuatrista or cuatro player who will be performing fusions of traditional music from the lowlands of Colombia & Venezuela with modern music. Without any further ado, we present to you the Cuatro.

Taraf de Haïdouks in Paradiso Noord Amsterdam

In 2012 I first wrote about the Tolhuistuin: (click) , In 2014 I co-organised a party there: (click) and now I’d just like to point to you a concert of an amazing band I can’t wait to dance to in the new club on the same complex; Paradiso Noord.

The Taraf de Haïdouks is a group of Gypsy “Lautari” (traditional musicians) who come from the little modest Romanian village of Clejani in the Valachian countryside. Ever since their first visit to Western Europe back in 1991, Taraf de Haïdouks have been considered as the epitome of Gypsy music’s fabulous vitality. They consist of dozen brilliant instrumentalists and singers, with ages ranging roughly from 20 to 80 and the band members seem to have been relatively unaffected by their succes they’ve retained their sense of humour, and their way of life.

Taraf de Haïdouks consists of:
Gheorghe Falcaru: flute
Gheorghe Anghel “Caliu”: violin
Robert Gheorghe: violin
Constantin Lautaru “Costica”: violin, vocals
Marin Manole “Marius”: accordion
P. Marin Manole: accordion, vocals
Filip Simeonov: clarinet
Paul Giuclea “Pasalan”: violin, vocals
Ion Tanase “Ionica”: cimbalom

In their new album “Of Lovers, Gamblers and Parachute Skirts”, Taraf de Haïdouks are revisiting some of the old styles which have enchanted Western audiences on their earlier albums: Gypsy love songs, old-school dance tunes, Turkish-flavoured instrumentals, and poignant Romanian ballads. AND THEY’RE COMING TO AMSTERDAM on Friday February 13 TO PRESENT THEIR NEW ALBUM! Presale has started!

Admission 20, – incl. day membership.
Doors open 19:30
Supporting program: La Manouche @ 20:00
Before and after the favorite gypsy tunes of DJ Tommi
