Timna Brauer in Stockholm

Stockholm, 26 March 2010 – Last weekend, the „Timna Brauer & Elias Meiri“ ensemble gave two guest concerts in Stockholm. On Francophony Day, the artists performed a programme featuring French chansons titled „Chansons & Violons“ at the Fokuniversetet, which was met with great enthusiasm by the audience.

On the following day, the „Timna Brauer & Elias Meiri“ ensemble captured a large audience on Sweden’s renowned world music stage „Stallet“ with their „Songs from Jerusalem“, a programme focusing on the common roots and traditions of Jewish-Arab music. The viewers paid farewell to the artists in the hope that they would be seeing them again sometime soon. The ensemble had not been heard in Stockholm for 14 years.
