Location: Harbourfront Centre (235 Queens Quay West) - Toronto, Canada
Harbourfront Centre’s summer season of weekend festivals continues with Classical V: Brass, (July 26-28). You might not think “Asian” when it comes to classical brass music, but think again! This year’s lineup features stage performances and a site-wide parade from the Jaipur Kawa Brass Band, who play the Gypsy-inflected traditional North Indian tunes of Rajasthan often heard in Bollywood films. Other Asian performers include Chennai-based multi-instrumentalist Karthik Ramalingam playing Hindusthani flute music and the Near East Trio & Friends, playing cross-cultural world music from the Silk Road. All events are free all weekend!
