Oriental Landscapes 2017 and 2018
a contemporary oriental music festival
Concerts, Conferences, Workshops
with scholars and international artists in five cities around The Netherlands.
The artistic vision of Oriental Landscapes carries a reflection on the history of Oriental music and searches for a common ground for the future of the shared musical heritage of the Oriental world. With each new edition, we take our audiences on a new journey through time exploring origins, interactions, and innovation in maqam, the main building block of oriental music, whilst focusing on different regions and countries.
