Francesco Turrisi’s Tarab

"Enchanting' is how The Irish Times described the music of Francesco Turrisi's most recent Tarab performance at The National Concert Hall which focused on music with an Arabic dimension. Tarab now turn their focus to the Eastern Mediterranean, with the addition of Greek singer Xanthoula Dakovanou and the exquisite saz and lyra of Athens based Irishman Paul Goodman to Tarab's core trio of Andrew Csibi's bass , Nick Roth's saxophone and Turrisi's piano, accordion and frame drum.

Together they explore a rich repertoire of folkloric music from Greece, central Asia, southern Italy and Turkey, forging a persuasive link between modal jazz and the improvisations of the Turkish and Greek maqam tradition.
