"A bridge of sounds between the Orient and Occident"

Ancient musical traditions from the Middle East and Balkans are blended with jazz and contemporary improvised music through a Western frame of mind. 

Arifa’s secret lies in the creative chemistry between its three members. Coming from Romania, Turkey, the Netherlands and Germany their music is just as diverse as their origins, moving from traditional Turkish and Balkan sounds to jazz and contemporary music.

Their music is just as diverse as their origins, moving from traditional Turkish and Arabic orient sounds to jazz and classical music. Arifa's inspired arrangements and inventive compositions create an intense, radiant atmosphere.



Alex Simu ((bass)clarinet, Romania), Franz von Chossy (piano, Germany), Sjahin During (percussion, Turkey / the Netherlands)
These morning concerts take place every third Sunday of the month in the Handelsbeurs foyer. A drink in hand, whole families of music lovers gather around passionate performers of jazz, classical and world music.
