Club Amsterdam Klezmer Online – September 2020
After a successful launch we now proudly present: the second edition of Club Amsterdam Klezmer Online! As you may know, being able to organise our Club Amsterdam Klezmer Nights means a lot to us. That is why we decided to make it into an online event so everyone can safely party with us. The format is similar to the live version. There will be an AKB live-performance with different musical themes, musical guests, interviews and visual art by Martin Draax.
The second CAK Online will be on 24-09-2020 with special guest Mehmet Polat playing solo on his UD. Mehmet Polat is a master ud player, composer, ensemble leader and soloist who tours internationally. From Africa to India, Persia to the Balkans, Contemporary to Jazz, he has been combining various musical genres with his Alevi Spiritual, Anatolian Folk and Ottoman classical music background. Through his improvisations, compositions and his own take on a variety of musical styles, Mehmet is constantly searching for new musical paths and inspiration. After many years of research, he invented his own technique to advance beyond the limitations of his traditional instrument.We hope you will tune in on September 24th. Let’s stay in contact and…stay healthy !
