Aashti A Musical Caravan that Delivers the Sound of Peace and Hope
In the summer of 2008, a concert in Taipei brought together six “Balkan music lovers”, from Macedonia and Taiwan, to create one of the most colourful pages written on Balkan music in Formosa, an Island full of its own rich cultural vitality. Aashti's musical spectrum encompasses Balkan mountain songs and dance music, mysterious tunes of Orthodox Christianity and Sufism, as well as Mediterranean accentuated charms of drumming. Always being at the crossroad between East and West, the Balkan music has long sought to reconcile the differences in the musical styles which encounter and reveal a universal harmony that underlines them. Piece by piece, we are stunned at the wonder of all the stories. Through Aashti, this music is again striving to transcend the space between East and West and reveal the simple truth that “We are one”.
