Ladom Ensemble is the best example of the musical integration that defines this country. Drawing from Persian, Balkan, South American, and Turkish music, these four musicians effortlessly integrate these musical genres and blend them into a contemporary classical framework. Energetic performances, mingled with the musicians’ cultural and musical stories that further the audience’s overall experience. With a unique combination of instruments consisting of accordion, world percussion, cello, and piano, they create a distinct yet accessible sound into a memorable performance for all ages. Original compositions such as Raha, Noor, and Veles I & II represent the ensemble’s vast musical works of Middle Eastern persuasion, while their own arrangements of Brahms’ Hungarian Dance, Piazzolla’s Libertango, and even Weird Fishes by Radiohead, gives familiar works a refreshed musical diversity to share.
