Event Description

Gord Grdina (Vancouver) - Guitar / Oud
Mark Helias (New York) – Bass
Hank Roberts (New York) – Cello
Hamin Honari (Montreal/Iran) – Persian Percussion

Virtuoso Vancouver oud player Grdina’s new middle eastern/avant jazz ensemble is a quartet featuring illustrious New York collaborators Mark Helias (bass) Hank Roberts (cello) and Hamin Honari on Persian percussion. Grdina’s compositions are mostly based on classical Arabic maqam and Persian dastgah traditions but are performed in a creative jazz context where improvised group interplay is as important as solos and expanded tonality is welcomed. The music is intricate and often delicate with a deep connection to the past while looking forward. It defies categorization but remains comfortably engaging. The compositions cover a lot of ground. There are dark, brooding but frequently exciting excursions on middle eastern modes and vamps, more contrapuntally through-composed works, and two slow, song-like explorations for strings without percussion. The final piece is a vibrant, foot-tapping tribute to west African guitarist Boubacar Traore. This project extends Grdina’s previous fusions involving jazz improvisation and middle eastern music.
