I switched tickets and closed my eyes and picked this concert, knowing full well that the Kronos Quartet will not disappoint! Who knew there were Azerbaijan music groupies? Well there are and for just cause, Alin Qasimov and his daughter Fargana rock? Well maybe not rock, but the held their audience in a trance for a very long time with melodies from their homeland. Homayoun Sakhi plays rubab, a guitar like instrument from Afghanastan that was also enthralling. And the show started with Dohee Lee from South Korea with a dance and singing and drama story telling that paved the way for the rest of this diverse and wonderful program. It’s hard to have an opinion of things that are heard for the first time, at least for me, but I’ll listen to Kronos and be drawn into the World any time!
