Awake LOVE Orchestra in Concert:
Offers a fusion of traditional and modern music. From our broad spectrum of musical genres, a repertoire is selected to suit any event, atmosphere and environment.
“A completely mind-blowing, heart-rocketing and transcending experience, which for me transcends cultural difference and brings people in sync with love. It’s all about experiencing, connectedness unity and beauty.” (audience member after concert at Västerås Teater 26 May 2012)
The French Newspaper La Depeche wrote:
”Awake LOVE Orchestra is exceptionally dynamic, versatile, charismatic and in total connivance with each other and the general public who took part in this remarkable show. ”
We combine voices from world music with cellos, percussion, harmonium and accordion to create our own versions of traditional and contemporary songs. To deepen the experience of our concerts we also incorporate texts written for the Awake Project and drawn from classical drama, and invite special guests and associate artists to add their voice, instruments and energy to the show.
For a church recital we propose a collection of sacred music spanning Mediterranean polyphony, ancient hymns, Scandinavian prayers and our original interpretation of Rachmaninov’s Vespers.
For more festive atmospheres the Awake ensemble invite you to dance to their impressive repertoire of contemporary music and gypsy folk songs, accompanied by percussion, strings and vocal polyrhythms.
