Allos Musica

Founded in 2006 by James Falzone and featuring the oud (an ancient Arabic lute), voice, accordion, clarinet, and percussion instruments from around the world, Allos Musica explores the intersection of divergent streams of contemporary classical, jazz, and traditional music from the Middle East and Europe. “Though the Arabic influence is unmistakable,” writes Peter Margasak of the Chicago Reader, “the music’s emotional clarity and lyrical grace is universal.”

The Allos Musica Ensemble comes to the festival in collaboration with the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts.
