Chai For Two is made up of David Mowat and Knud Stuwe (see band members for details). On this occasion they are joined by oud and derabukka player Simon Leach.
They’re playing klezmer, Sephardic, Middle Eastern music and jazz. One cross-over from BEJE is a new tune that David wrote called ‘Justin’. It is Middle Eastern influenced, using a maqam or mode David learned when part of the Arabic Balkan Gypsy Band. Its improvisational rules are looser however than if following the traditional system. That’s just to tell you about one out of twenty or so melodies we’ll be playing this afternoon.
For £3, on April 6th Sunday at 5pm, at the Falafel King 6 Cotham Hill Bristol. Do book a place if you want to come as the venue is small.
