GUY MENDILOW
ENSEMBLE

Folding radio theatre-style stories into a top flight global concert, the Guy Mendilow Ensemble  is “an international tour de force” (Bethlehem Morning Call) from the Middle East, South and North America. GME combines world-class musicianship with cinematic storytelling in shows that “explode with artistry, refinement, and excitement” (Hebrew Union College), whisking audiences to distant times and picturesque places, conjuring voices lost to upheaval, to spark personal connections with stories of ordinary people living through extraordinary moments of change.   Adding such visceral dimensions to tales of the long-ago-and-far-away, GME stirs resonant questions about our own struggles and dilemmas today.

To bring audiences into these moments, GME draws on traditional tunes, techniques, and tales but in elegant arrangements and with radical reframing. GME calls on expertise with a broad musical palette. The emotionality of Western classical music is intensified by the bittersweet rawness of Tango, gorgeous vocal harmonies and the rhythmic fire of classical Arabic percussion. GME’s storytelling is inspired by the dreamlike qualities of Pablo Neruda and Michael Ondaatje, and by Dan Carlin’s vivid restoration of faded historical memory.
