The performance is inspired by boundless desert landscapes, places where cultures, religions and languages meet. The performance wanders along frequently changing desert tracks, ones that open windows to self-discovery and spiritual elevation, that evoke a love of freedom and open spaces. Vocalist Victoria Seruya has clung to the desert experience since her childhood in Morocco. This new performance by the Seruya Ensemble brings together musical worlds inspired by styles and traditions from desert areas in the north, center and west of Africa and the Middle East. Members of the ensemble composed these songs and arranged them in a colorful acoustic package with electronic touches.
