Norman Seaton¡La 32ª Convención de 2019 de la Asociación Nacional de Acordeón (NAA) terminó el domingo pasado! El evento siempre está enfocado en personas, acordeones, conexiones, camaradería y diversión.
 
Para los fanáticos del acordeón, había algo para complacer a todos y asistí a muchos talleres, conciertos y sesiones improvisadas, y me inspiró todo.
 
Se llevó a cabo un importante evento musical: el estreno mundial de la orquestación de acordeón de "Two Plus One" compuesta por Gary Daverne, fue realizada por la NAA Festival Orchestra y dirigida por el director, cantante y acordeonista neozelandés Lionel Reekie. Lionel también realizó talleres, cantó y entretuvo.

Blue Mountains Music Festival – Australia

Baltic Bar MitzvahThe Blue Mountains Music Festival is currently underway in Katoomba, Australia and will finish this weekend. The event included over 45 acts including daily performances by the group “Baltic Bar Mitzvah” which features a multi-instrumental line-up.

The group, which includes accordionist Neil Simpson play a contemporary interpretation of music from Eastern European and Jewish cultures. Each member of the ensemble has studied music extensively in their chosen disciplines and currently practice professional performance careers.

Combined with a constant focus to improvise and explore the music they perform, Baltic Bar Mitzvah’s dynamic sound traverses the frenetic melodies of the Balkans to the passionate embrace of Argentinian tango, and together with a progressive fusion of grooves, changes perceptions of what folk music can be, and leave the dance-floor wailing for more.

All-Russian Day of Bayan, Accordion and Harmonica 2019 – Russia

LipsThe All-Russian Day of Bayan, Accordion and Harmonica 2019 will be celebrated at the Gnesins RAM Concert Hall in Moscow on March 16th. The Department of the Bayan and Accordion of the Gnesins RAM established the event with project manager, Friedrich Lips (picture left).

The purpose of the event is to become a part of the national cultural project. According to the founders, in search of a national idea it is very important to support initiatives to preserve the traditions and achievements of our multinational country. The event is also Russia's contribution to World Accordion Day.

Accordion, bayan and harmonica players (both amateur and professional) in all regions of Russia have shown great enthusiasm for this event.

It is worth noting that throughout the twentieth century these reed instruments were an integral part of the life of the people of Russia: Russians, Tatars, Bashkirs, Ukrainians, and many others. The bayan, harmonica and accordion played an invaluable role during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945.

International Klezmer Festival Fürth – Germany

Felix BandThe International Klezmer Festival Fürth & Jewish Music Today event will be held at the Kulturforum Fürth, Germany from March 15th to 17th organised by Stadtverwaltung Fürth.

The event will include a variety of workshops and concerts some of which are sold out.

On March 16th, Felix Shinder & Dengi Vpered (picture left), an 8 piece band from Ukraine (which includes accordionist Oleg Vasyanovych), will perform Wild Klezmer mixed with rough Balkan brass and "gangster songs". The band unites Russian and Ukrainian music, especially old folk songs from Odessa, with Yiddish songs and Klezmer melodies from all over Eastern Europe.

This will be followed by Mischpoke (Germany - picture below), a six piece band which includes accordionist Martin Terens. This group show their joy of playing with tempo, wit and charm, as well as melancholy and depth – attributes that characterize their sound.

Mames Babegenush (Denmark) which includes accordionist Nicolai Kornerup will provide further entertainment. This popular band has been bringing traditional Freilachs and Eastern European folk to the international stages for 15 years now and this year they present a project of a very special kind. Joined by a string quartet, the band embarks on a new musical territory. The result is absolutely worth listening to: sometimes klezmer, sometimes classical music, sometimes lively and excited, sometimes calm and melancholic.
