Free daytime recitals in which Newcastle University’s BMus in Folk and Traditional Music degree students give performances that show the culmination of their four years of study.
Each concert will be different, conceived and created by one student, but usually with a band of others to brung in depth and diversity.
All of these performances are assessed and form a significant part of a student’s final mark, and for this reason no Latecomers will be admitted once an individual recital is underway.
1pm – Tamara Kazziha (Voice)
Having roots in Egypt and Scotland I have always had a love of travelling and exploring other cultures. As such I have developed a love for many different cultural styles of singing, such as Celtic, Middle-Eastern, African and Eastern European. I also have a keen interest in free improvisation and mythical folklore.
I currently sing in 2 very different bands, ‘Monkey Puzzle’ which is a 6-piece live electronica band based in Newcastle. It draws influences from nature, shifting states of consciousness and music from all over the globe. I will be performing my final recital with Aether, a Newcastle-based three piece spanning cello, vocals, piano and violin. “Merging influences from contemporary classical, Eastern European folk, celtic, medieval, art-song and music for visual performance, Aether offers a truly unique, ethereal, atmospheric original sound” (The Crack).
