World music duo to present free show at Weis Center

LEWISBURG – World music and classical ensemble Aritmia, made up of accordionist Merima Kljuco and guitarist Miroslav Tadic, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 28 in the Weis Center Atrium Lobby. The performance is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required.

With Aritmia, two celebrated instrumentalists ruminate on their common roots and shared loves of traditional Balkan and classical music. In a program that includes original compositions as well as arrangements of Manuel de Falla and the mournful music of sevdah – sometimes called “Bosnian blues” – this virtuosic pair shares the fruits of their unique musical partnership, offering a singular mix of joy, yearning and aching beauty.

One of the world’s finest concert accordionists, Bosnian-born Kljuco is a frequent guest soloist with orchestras like the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and Holland Symphonia, and has worked with internationally renowned artists and ensembles such as Theodore Bikel, MusikFabrik and the Schonberg Ensemble.

An acclaimed guitarist of Bosnian, Serbian and Croatian origins, Tadic has performed and recorded with luminaries such as Terry Riley, Pl’cido Domingo, Wadada Leo Smith, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Monte-Carlo.
