Cross Current Music, artist rep - Gordon Grdina's Haram

Canada

A phenomenal culture-mashing juggernaut led by Gordon Grdina (Dan Mangan, Mats Gustafsson, Mark Helias) on Iraqi oud, Haram pays homage to traditional Arabic music while mixing elements of noise, electronic soundscape, and western free improv into their explosively self-expressive sound. With creative heavy-hitters JP Carter trumpet, Jesse Zubot violin, Kenton Loewen drums, Tommy Babin bass, Emad Armoush vocals, François Houle clarinet, Chris Kelly saxophone, Tim Gerwing, Liam MacDonald percussion. “The music’s backbone is traditional, but subtle injections of noise make it quite unlike anything you’d hear in the shisha dens of Cairo or Baghdad.” – Georgia Straight
