An ensemble that sounds like how Vancouver looks, Sounds Global Ensemble's diverse repertoire is drawn from Jewish, Persian, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, Indian and Chinese music. This band is comprised of some of Vancouver's most active musicians in the world music scene: Moshe Denburg on guitar, Ali Razmi on tar (Persian lute), Jonathan Bernard on percussion, Lan Tung on erhu (Chinese 2-string violin), Dailin Hsieh on zheng (Chinese zither). In addition, their singing creates an unusual mix of ethnic vocal styles.
The Sounds Global Ensemble is formed to represent the Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra (VICO) at festivals and events when it's not feasible to have the full orchestra on stage. The ensemble can perform with 4-8 members. The musicians of the Sounds Global are also members of the orchestra. They represent the different
cultural backgrounds where VICO musicians have come from.
