Event Description

Open Space and The Fifty Fifty Arts Collective present Gordon Grdina's The Marrow Thursday, October 25 at 7:30pm.

Gordon Grdina is a Vancouver-based JUNO Award winning oud/guitarist whose career has spanned continents, decades and constant genre exploration throughout avant-garde jazz, free form improvisation, contemporary indie rock and classical Arabic. His singular approach to the instruments have earned him recognition from the highest ranks of the jazz/improv world.

The Marrow combines Middle Eastern music with avant-garde jazz. It includes renowned bassist and composer Mark Helias (bass), seasoned improvisational cellist Hank Roberts (cello) and Vancouver-based percussionist Hamin Honari (tombak, daf, frame drum).

The music, all original compositions by Grdina mostly based on classical Arabic and Persian modes, provides a context for creative group interplay and solos that often involve extended tonality. The music is intricate, sometimes delicate, other times high-risk exciting. Together, The Marrow promises to enthral and delight.

Admission is free / by donation. Doors open at 7:00.
