About Concert: Two Coasts by Layale Chaker

Layale Chaker, violin
& musicians of Sarafand (piano, cello, double bass, percussions)

Violinist and composer Layale Chaker will be presenting extracts of Two Coasts: Past and Current Streams, a project which reimagines works by Baroque French and English composers ranging from Rameau to Dowland as intersecting streams that explore the theme of water.

The suite will be presented as a chamber jazz quintet version, followed by her newest work, Radio Afloat, the vision of a radio lost at sea, that evokes a reflection on the intertwined destinies of people and the natural world. It manifests even louder in times of collective pain, a commentary on the ebb and flow of politics of power and conflict that further the vulnerability of the land and those who tend to it.
