The Saze Project

Southern Albanian music lost and found Tickets

Saze hails from the stark landscapes of Southern Albania - a polyphonic music with the power to entrance any listener, even if they are strangers to the culture of this long-isolated country. Urban instruments such as clarinet and violin took their inspiration from the iso-polyphonic singing of the villages where vocalists follow the ancient patterns of 'lead' and 'cutting' voices to improvise swirls around the melody, with moods ranging from aching, blues-like ‘kaba’ to joyful dances. 

This hand-picked ensemble includes some of the finest contemporary performers of this mesmerizing style originating in the cradles of Saze around the beautiful towns of Korça and Përmet, opening a window into Albania's fascinating musical traditions.
