East of the River
Solstice: Darkness Is Your Candle

December 21 at 3:30
West Building, West Garden Court

World music supergroup East of the River offers a very different type of holiday concert with this mesmerizing performance. Focused on the winter solstice, family, and new beginnings, Solstice: Darkness Is Your Candle explores music of the Mediterranean, Balkans, Armenia, and the Middle East, presenting the earliest songs of those extraordinary cultures. Taking its name from the work of the Persian poet Rumi, the performance explores a lunar atmosphere in the first half of the program and then shifts into rebirth and daylight to create a unique and unforgettable musical journey for the New Year.
