MIDWEST WORLD FEST “Lunch Listen”
Tuesdays: January 12 at 12:00 pm • Free Admission
Since 2003, Arts Midwest World Fest has brought international musicians to communities throughout the Midwest. You may remember when The Arts Center hosted four world-renowned performance groups. Many of us have fond memories of the experience and impact these “visitors” had on our community.
This year, the artists cannot perform in person but Arts Midwest is offering the programs virtually, on-line, available to everyone to enjoy, not just the “host communities.” There are study guides, discussion questions, and videos that accompany each performance group, and of course, concert videos. This year showcases three international groups. You can watch on-line (https://www.artsmidwest.org/worldfestonline) or come to The Arts Center and watch with us on the following dates, bring your own lunch and enjoy a socially distanced but culturally rich experience.
Hadar Maoz (Israel) – Tuesday, January 12 at 12:00 pm
Traverse 2,500 years of musical tradition from the heart of Central Asia with Hadar Maoz and her ensemble. Making use of traditional instruments like the tar and saz, Hadar’s electrifying Bukharin sound finds inspiration everywhere, from ancient Persia to modern Israel, while discovering common ground with blues and rock along the way.
Additional viewings will be on Tuesdays: January 19 and February 2. They will feature respectively artists Paulo Padilha E Bando (Brazil) and Hikaru (Japan).
