Stereognosis

BRETT CAMPBELL
8 pm., Thursday August 29 | $20 advance, $25 day of show. Under 21 permitted with legal guardian.
Alberta Rose Theatre
3000 NE Alberta St.
 
[MIDDLE EASTERN BREAKBEAT] Beginning as a recording project, the singular and incendiary combo of Uzbek percussion master Abbos Kosimov (who’s worked with musicians from Kronos Quartet to Béla Fleck to Stevie Wonder), Turkish bağlama saz (plucked long-necked lute) virtuoso Sinan Ayyildiz, bass boss Miles Jay, Egyptian ney flutist and keyboard player Michael Naguib and Belgian beatboxer Fatty K proved so successful that it’s turned into a one-time-only world tour. The ancient and modern mixture works much more organically than the usual shallow exoticism of grafting traditional music over standard, anonymous beats, resulting in a happy pan-cultural hybrid that you can dance to, as a pair of expert belly dancers will demonstrate.
