The Albuquerque-based duo fuses their old world influences into a singular sound drawing from Turley, India, the Middle-East, jazz, the Balkans, folk and more.
Two Odd Butterflies, a duo based in Albuquerque, fuses their old world influences into a singular sound that is the sum of their musical encounters. Issa Noor (hand percussion, baglama) pulls his sonic textures from Turkey, India and the Near and Middle-East, and Clara Byom (clarinets, piano, accordion) draws influence from Jewish klezmer music, the Balkans, jazz, American folk dance, and Western classical music. United by a shared curiosity and desire to explore the ways in which their musical worlds overlap and blend through traditional repertoire, contemporary improvisations, and original compositions, Two Odd Butterflies' sound can be defined as both melancholy and playful, conventional and novel. Don’t miss this free performance, the latest in a monthly series of free events in collaboration with AMP Concerts and the Friends for the Public Library.
