MARLBORO, VT - (March 23, 2010) - Marlboro College will present a free, open to the public concert of traditional Turkish Sufi music featuring Frederick Stubbs at 3:00pm on Sunday, April 4 in Ragle Hall.
On the Turkish reed flute known as the ney, Stubbs will perform devotional music of the Mevlevi Dervishes and pieces from the Ottoman Turkish art tradition. The compositions, spanning several hundred years, will be rendered in the modal system known as makam, and woven together with the colorful improvisations known as taksim. S.K. Baliga leads the accompanying ensemble on bendir (frame drum) and voice.
Frederick Stubbs has a doctorate in ethnomusicology from Wesleyan University and was a Fulbright-Hays scholar in Istanbul in 1991 where he studied with Niyazi Sayin and Ihsan Ozgen. He is a founding member of the EurAsia Ensemble, and appears regularly with El Arte Flamenco, and other groups in the Boston Area.
