Concert with Sarah Maria & Alper Yakin & Uygar Cagli
mica - music austria, Stiftgasse 29, 1070 Wien
The three musicians create sensual, wild, sometimes beguilingly gentle, but always exciting sound worlds. Sarah Maria's Mediterranean-Celtic music cheekily mixed with Alper Yakin's and Uygar Cagli's virtuoso Spanish, Levantine and jazzy influences. In the repertoire old Spanish Coplas, Mexican Rancheras, Argentinian Tangos, Sefardic sounds - all shaken and stirred anew - Plus a little Fado, a touch of Flamenco... Come and let yourself be carried away by great feelings, the "gran sentimiento" for one evening!
