The Asambura-Ensemble (founded in 2013 in Hanover) consists of musicians of different nationalities and unites different styles. It interprets classical music in a dialogue with non-European musical cultures and avantgarde and develops new perspectives on one’s ‘own’ culture. ‘Foreign’ timbres, melodies and rhythms meet European Classical and contemporary sounds. The ensemble is always on the lookout for new perspectives on familiar sounds, connections between unthinkable and, not least, areas of friction with the social, societal and political present, which make music current and relevant today.
Asambura reinterprets the confusion of tongues experienced by the people in the Old Testament’s parable ‘Tower of Babel’ – important in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Asambura tries to take a fresh look at this story from a perspective of appreciation of cultural and religious diversity.
