Shadow and Light - duoJalal's Rumi Experience
Inspired by their namesake, 13th century poet and mystic Jalal al-din Rumi, duoJalal (Kathryn Lockwood, viola and Yousif Sheronick, percussion) present an original new recording that bridges cultural and musical genres. The music on this hypnotically beautiful disc includes two commissioned works from duoJalal’s “Rumi Experience” project, and comprises music from Japan, Indonesia, Mongolia, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas. duoJalal has selected a Rumi poem to pair with each piece of music, with the poems (in English translation) printed in the CD liner notes.
“This very rewarding CD plays an eloquent and engaging tribute to the wisdom and vision of Rumi.” - MusicWeb International“Taken as a whole, this collection of works makes a strong case for the duo’s mission of cultural inclusion expressed in music. And it is musicking of a high order, well-conceived, brilliantly played and lovingly presented on this CD.” - theWholeNote
“Delicate as they are colorful, the duo delivers polished and haunting performances. Sheronick’s percussion palette is vivacious.” - Performing Arts Monterey Bay
