“…a haunting elegance of expression.” – Electronic Musician

Electro-acoustic world music ensemble Stellamara presents an exceptional showcase concert in collaboration with world renowned Odissi, Indian tribal fusion dance artist, Colleena Shakti, and contemporary Persian devotional dance artists Kristen Sague and Aliah Najmabadi.  Stellamara premiers their exciting new music with passionate rhythms, eastern melodies, dramatic orchestral sections, otherworldly ambience and deep bass grooves, and with the ecstatic performances of devotional dance.  Evolving for over a decade of recording and performing, Stellamara unites world-renowned musicians and dancers from diverse cultural backgrounds in a shared devotion for folk and classical music rooted in Turkish, Arabic, Balkan, Medieval European and Persian and Indian traditions. Stellamara is regarded as being at the forefront of contemporary world music, giving new life and a fresh, modern expression to the beautiful and mysterious qualities of timeless, modal traditional music and performing arts.
