The University of New Hampshire welcomes guest artists, Okbari, in residence on Apr. 10 and Apr. 11, 2013, playing the traditional music of the Ottoman Empire. This multi-cultural music, stemming from the Ottoman Empire, traveled with the Ottomans across the Mediterranean basin into North Africa, carrying with it the musical and devotional practices of the Sufi sect of Islam.  The members of Okbari also bring the perspective of Armenian contributions to Ottoman music and the ways Ottoman musical traditions came to the US in the early 1900s with Armenian, Greek, Turkish, and Arabic immigrants, a number of whom settled in the Northeast. Here they carried on their musical and cultural traditions, interacting in new ways and new contexts with each other, even after the Armenian genocide. 

The members of Okbari—Amos Libby,  oud, Eric LaPerna, percussion, and Duncan Hardy, qanun—will present a public talk on Wednesday 4/10 at 4:30 pm in the PCAC  room M223, a hands-on musician-oriented workshop (also open to the public, especially other musicians) on Thursday 4/11 from 3:30 to 4:45 in the PCAC, Bratton Recital Hall, and a public concert on Thursday 4/11 at 7:30 pm in the Johnson Theater.
