World mu­sic ensem­ble at Vic­to­ria Play­house

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FEATURES/COMMUNITY -

The Vic­to­ria Play­house will present the hyp­notic world mu­sic ensem­ble Lalun this evening in Vic­to­ria.

Es­tab­lished in 2011, Lalun is com­prised of Liron Man from Is­rael and Spain on hand pans and fla­menco guitar, Lan Tung from Tai­wan and Canada on erhu (the Chi­nese vi­o­lin) and vo­cals and Cana­dian Jonathan Bernard on per­cus­sion. With their unique in­stru­men­ta­tion and hyp­notic in­ter­cul­tural sound, this in­ter­na­tional ensem­ble presents orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions and tra­di­tional mu­sic from Europe, Asia, and the Mid­dle East, coloured and in­flu­enced by its mem­bers’ roots in Chi­nese, Fla­menco, Gali­cian, and Jewish mu­sic.

Although fresh on the scene, Lalun’s mem­bers bring over 50 years of pro­fes­sional mu­si­cal ex­pe­ri­ence to the stage, in­clud­ing per­for­mances at Na­tional Arts Cen­ter in Ot­tawa, Place des Arts in Mon­treal, the Chan Cen­tre for the Per­form­ing Arts in Van­cou­ver and the John F Kennedy Cen­ter for the Per­form­ing Arts in Washington DC.

It gets un­der­way at 7:30 p.m. Tick­ets are avail­able through the theatre box of­fice.
