The Story

Led by Montreal based Lamia Yared, singer and Oud player of classical Arabic and Ottoman music, Ensemble Zaman is a journey from the Byzantine Empire, with stops at different moments in time. From Syria, where the first Christians in the east sang their songs, to Constantinople, with its Phanariot Greek hymns and chants, to the classical Ottoman songs, this is a wonderful voyage in sound through these neighbouring regions, where musical traditions are as rich as they are varied.
