AboutA night of Senegalese, Bosnian and Sephardic Jewish music in Australia featuring LAMINE SONKO TRIO AND NELA TRIFKOVIĆ WITH SARAY ILUMINADO.
“The Gathering” is an intimate act of coming together of artists Lamine Sonko with his trio and Nela Trifković with her ensemble SARAY Iluminado in the ritual of musical, cultural and poetic exchange. Through original compositions, traditional melodies and stories that accompany them these artists transform the intimate surroundings of MEMO HALL into a temple of West African and West Balkan connection.
And what do a Senegalese guewel (a traditional role of a “culture keeper”) and a Bosnian “song-teller” have in common? Both, Lamine and Nela grew up in worlds dynamically imbued with cultural knowledges and practices, which have informed their ways of being and daily lives since early childhood.
