The members of the Kosmos Ensemble have travelled extensively, performing with musicians all over the world, as well as within the broad multiculturalism of London’s music scene. They have collectively studied music from North Africa, the Middle East, Jewish, Balkan and Gypsy music, Argentine tango, flamenco, Celtic and jazz traditions as well as contemporary classical music. They combine all their knowledge with a respect for their own Western classical music training, performing freely with panache, innovation and creativity, incorporating improvisation into their own unique arrangements and compositions.
Kosmos has performed across Europe as well as at the UK’s most prestigious music festivals. Performing highlights include London’s Southbank Centre, Royal Albert Hall, Institute of Contemporary Arts, Kings Place, Padova River Festival (Italy), Festival Estival (Poland), Hydra Festival (Greece), Leeds International Concert Season, Ryedale, Swaledale, and Wimbledon International Festivals. Broadcasts include BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM.
