Ensemble Elektra brings a fresh perspective to creative music, connecting the modern beat of New York's life with its members' multi-ethnic roots. Their mission is to integrate musical traditions and styles and to emphasize building peace through live music rituals. The group will play original compositions by Elektra Kurtis from the newly released cd ìBridges from the Eastî mixed with more recent ones.
Elektra Kurtis grew up in a community of Greek refugees in Poland, continued her musical studies in Helsinki, Finland, and then came to NY. Her compositions reflect her multi-cultural musical experiences: classical Western, Greek, Arabic and jazz music. The Ensemble is a quintet: 2 violins, clarinet, bass, and drums....
