World music ensemble at Victoria Playhouse
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.
