Programme

Enter the entrancing Temple Hall and enjoy Mosaic Man and Loradeniz's hybrid DJ set. Vinyl meets live singing, electronic soundscapes meet voice excerpts from movies, modern sounds meet classical pieces - all while surfing on a continuous strong and percussive beat. Make sure not to miss the exhibition behind the Temple of drawings and paintings of Palmyra, Syria by Theo de Feyter.

Trio Qasyoun was named after the mountain near Damascus, where the Manla sisters grew up. Together with the Iraqi percussionist Latif al Obaidi, they perform oriental Arabic music such as the music of Om Kalthoum, Mohamed Abdul Wahab, Mohamed Al Asbgy and many other great musicians, as well as traditional Syrian and Turkish music with new arrangements. In the past few years they performed during the TV programme 'Vrije Geluiden' and at various festivals, such as World Blend Café and the 'Grachtenfestival' (Canal Festival).

Numerous museums, libraries, and private collections in the Netherlands contain Persian miniatures, small paintings on paper, often used to illustrate books. Funded by the Mondriaan Fonds, art historian Forough Sajadi studies these enchanting paintings and the accompanying texts (calligraphy). In addition, she investigates their provenance and the Dutch collectors that brought them here. In this lecture, she will talk about the obstacles she faces and reveal some of her findings.

Let yourself be swept away by Mosaic Man and Loradeniz's hybrid DJ set. Vinyl meets live singing, electronic soundscapes meet voice excerpts from movies, modern sounds meet classical pieces - all while surfing on a continuous strong and percussive beat.

Loradeniz is an Istanbul-born and raised, Amsterdam-based music artist with an authentic heart and a true raver’s spirit. She flexes her triple-threat skills as a pianist, vocalist and producer.

Mosaic Man is the founder of Amsterdam-based online radio station Radio Tempo Não Pára. He’s known for his downtempo leftfield selections, with frequent Middle-Eastern twists which resonate with his Turkish background.
