Performance Notes

× Juno Award-winning oud player Gord Grdina leads Haram in a formidable pairing with guitar legend Marc Ribot.

A phenomenal culture-mashing juggernaut led by Juno Award-winning oud virtuoso and guitarist Gord Grdina, Haram pays homage to traditional Arabic music while mixing elements of noise, electronic soundscape and western free improv into their explosively self-expressive sound. Filtering Arabic music through Vancouver’s creative improvisational musicians, Haram shifts directions while building to euphoric crescendos. For this special performance, Gord Grdina’s Haram teams up with guitar legend Marc Ribot, who over a 40-year career has become the go-to guitarist for music adventurers including Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Robert Plant and Allison Kraus.
