                • A Day in the Life of the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music

                  JUNE 28, 2010, 12:00 PM (To see more of Michal's world music videos, visit http://inter-muse.com) This post will be a little bit different from my others. Rather than simply reporting on the music from the Fes Festival (which I will do in other postings) I'm going to try to convey the experience of being there. I've taken everything I shot from my first full day and laid the most vivid parts out, travelogue-style. So you're getting a full day in under 9 minutes. A word on the video quality: I went with my Flip camera which was fine for some things, and truly inadequate for others. So you are going to see some pretty grainy stuff every now and then (low light, fuzzy zoom, or both). You are also going to see some very high quality video that was kindly supplied to me by a REAL filmmaker with a REAL camera. So all in all it will be a bumpy ride. But frankly, Fes is a bumpy ride. That's why I start out with a statement from my colleague Cindy Byram, who has attended the festival for 6 years in a row, and who speaks from experience. In the end I agree with her 100%. There are four main venues for the festival: three paying, one public. One generally starts the day at the Batha Museum courtyard, an intimate setting with a magnificent Barberry tree that spreads its shade over 65% of the area. After a dinner break, you head on out to catch the "Big Act" at the impressive walled Bab al Makina (another paying venue) and then pass through the Bab Boujloud public performance area on your way to the last musical event, at the lovely Dar Tazi, where you can sit at a table under the trees, sip mint tea, and listen to Sufi chants. The public performances have been added in the last few years, and this is where you will find your everyday Moroccan, since the paying venues are too expensive for most. The music there is more local, and I was particularly taken with this venue, as you will see. As to the music? Everything I saw had merit on some level, and some even made my heart sing. But to put in my two cents, I believe that for the most part making music and listening to music is a transcendent act, so what is NOT sacred music? Still, I guess calling it "sacred music" makes it easier to give the Festival a theme, and since the event and the vibe are so dogma-free and tolerant, how can I complain?

                    Asif Ali Khan is Pakistan’s reining prince of Qawwali music. His distinctive style of this form of Sufi devotional music, dating back 700 years, is characterized by full-throated vocals and energetic rhythms. Khan can be meditative and trance-like and then suddenly thrilling and ecstatic–a genuinely inspiring experience. Please join us for a discussion and musical demonstration session moderated by Prof. Shahzad Bashir (Religious Studies).

                    • Part 01 | Hidayat Inayat-Khan | Concerto for String Orchestra, op. 48

                      I. Mouvement "Le Chant du coeur" II. Mouvement "Marche Rituelle sous pluie et tempete" Part 1 of 2 "The “Concerto for Strings”, opus 48, is performed by Oganes Girunyan, violin, Nataliya Girunyan, violin, Sergey Obukhov, viola, Stanislav Ovchinnikov, cello and Vladimir Dranitza, contrabass. Commentary on Movements I & II Hidayat Inayat-Khan ...The “Concerto for Strings” (opus 48), composed in 1972, reveals a further attempt to merge the two musical cultures, east and west, in one composition, without being too strictly conventional regarding the theoretical structures of either culture. This composition is mainly inspired by the melodic code “La Monotonia”, also heard in the Suite Symphonique. It is structured in four movements, each illustrating a specific picture. The first movement is an instrumental challenge presenting tremendous technical problems to all instruments involved, owing to the very great diversity of dynamics and the complexity of the thematic elements woven into a stream of notes which secretly build up a hidden harmonic structure, based on classical principles, yet evoking exotic atmospheres. The framework of this movement is conceived in the traditional style of what is know as Sonata form, with an exposition section, a development section and a re-exposition section ending with a Coda. The second movement is a short Scherzo, illustrating a procession starting off in strictest discipline but as the music unfolds, it becomes more and more expressing, ending on a fortissimo aspect as the procession reaches its destiny, which is described in the final dramatic sequences, and which lead one right up to the doorstep of the ‘Prayer House’ where the third movement actually takes place.
