Atlas Festival 6 and 7 September 2014
Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ Amsterdam

In the second Atlas Festival, the Atlas Ensemble welcomes, amongst others, the Indian master of the sarangi Dhruba Ghosh, and the world-famous Armenian duduk-player Gevorg Dabaghian. The 48-hours experience of music without boundaries, offers a combination of traditional and brand-new music. Meetings between musicians from different cultures render unheard new experiences: Indian raga principles, ecstatic playing from the Caucasus, quiet Japanese sounds and thrilling Chinese virtuosity stand alongside Western composition techniques in pieces that are specifically written for the ensemble.

The festival is fringed with surprise concerts (free entrance), exotic meals, demonstrations of Asian instruments, poetry, sushi-workshop, interviews, yoga and performances for children.
