the kamkars at the barbican june 19th (in aid of children of war)

Emma will be leading the Docklands Sinfonia in an exciting concert at the Barbican on June 19th. The orchestra will be joining soloists from exhilarating Iranian ensemble The Kamkars to perform the orchestral works of their director, Hooshang Kamkar, followed by a performance from the Kamkars Ensemble of their traditional music.

A large musical family, The Kamkars have been creating music together since they first began practising together in their childhood homes. Their performances fully explore the music of their homeland, taking in everything from traditional Persian music to Kurdish song. This concert is a chance to see two sides of the ensemble’s work – from Hooshang Kamkar’s orchestral compositions, fully realised by the Docklands Sinfonia, to their entrancing traditional music.

Above all, The Kamkars are defined by their astonishing musicality – instrumental lines weave and interlock, and each piece is intricately arranged. This virtuosity heightens the emotional impact of their performances, from moving traditional melodies to jubilant folk song.
