Gao Hong and Issam Rafea Duo at Macalester College

October 20, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


World Music at Macalester College presents a free concert by Gao Hong and Issam Rafea Duo  and the Macalester Asian Music Ensemble on October 20, at 7:30 PM.

Gao Hong would like to invite you to her very special concert with Syrian oud master Issam Rafea at Macalester College.  Their music soars to new heights with each performance. If you heard them a year or even a few months ago, you’ll be shocked by how much they’ve evolved in such a short period of time. Since they only play improvisations, no two performances are ever the same. Each concert is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, as the audience witnesses singular creations of high art that rise from the dust and come to life before their very eyes and ears – but are never to be seen or heard again. The more they perform together the more deeply they connect and the more beautiful and vibrant their music becomes.

Please come to the pre-concert talk/demonstration at 6:30 PM!
