with Joseph Celli
*Soundprint: Asia with Joseph Celli
Host Joseph Celli presents a program of music from Japan/Okinawa, Korea, China, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Tibet, Mongolia, & elsewhere in Asia. Included with the traditional court, folk, & religious music are occasional interviews with Asian musicians, World Premieres, and historical context about the music, musicians, & instruments.
Celli said, “Unfortunately, we tend to think of Asia as being homogeneous, but it actually has more musical diversity, and individuality than most places in the world.”
Programs range from the overtone singing of Tuva, the ecstatic Gamelan of Indonesia, and the elegant court music of Korea, Japan, & Cambodia. Information about upcoming concerts of Asian music, exhibitions & an occasional undiscovered spicy restaurant are all part of the fun.
