The Global Orchestra in Concert: Voice of Longing
Feel the vastness of the Tuvan steppe. Embrace the exuberance of Pakistani Qawali. Imagine yourself as a Luo-shepherd in rural Kenya. Feel the sweet pain of longing for your loved one. Shed tears for a friend in need. Move to the groove of Greek Leventikos and Aruban Zouk, but most of all please enjoy musicians from 9 different countries, coming together in harmony.
The Global Orchestra is a multi-cultural ensemble consisting mostly of members from the Global Music Programme at the Sibelius-Academy. In 2017 the orchestra joined forces with the Folk Big Band of the Sibelius Academy to perform at Tavastia with soloists Pekko Käppi and Litku Klemetti. The same project also resulted in a performance at the opening of Sibafest in 2018. The Global Orchestra is featured on the newly released FBB-album “Katrilli toisesta elämästä” and the upcoming album from the Global Music Department at the Sibelius-Academy.
