Quintet without borders [at Haunch of Venison]
Full text is not in this repository.
Çavusoğlu and Bojanov commissioned and filmed five virtuoso gypsy musicians in the small border town of Kesan, Turkey. The town is the centre of a Rom (Gypsy)community, in an area referred to by Çavusoğlu as “the end points of the European idea”. The Romany population in Kesan was forced to settle in the 1923 population exchange and is steeped in Greek-Turkish gypsy musical tradition and history.
A multi-screen video installation brings together individual footage of the musicians to create a harmonious audio-visual piece of synchronised sound and imagery.
