Anna Kemper Dance
Chalguh Chengi – ‘spirit of live music and dance’ in Turkish – is a brand new collaboration between the Hazir ensemble and dancer Anna Kemper. The show is a vibrant, colourful and accessible exploration of some of the myriad folk and classical music and dance styles rooted in the traditions of the Middle East and Turkey. The six accomplished multi-instrumentalists of Hazir play a rich array of acoustic instruments, with Sevilay’s voice evoking the beautiful sounds of her homeland Turkey.
Kemper has been performing Turkish and Middle Eastern dance internationally for over 2 decades. She has shared stages with some of the greatest artists of the genre, including Turkish fusion band Oojami, bellydance superstar Sonia Ochoa and Egyptian band Baladi Blues Ensemble. Commissions include teaching and performing within community and outreach organisations as well as the London Olympics. This project is supported by Arts Council England.
