SonCe Trio

In the Dutch delta of the Netherlands three different musical streams from Ukrain, Spain and Turkey transformed into SonCe. Their unconventional interplay of cello, synthesizers and wind instruments support the Ukrainian folk repertoire of eclectic singer Maryana Golovchenko. SonCe stands for the sun. Their mesmerising perfomance is both overshadowed and enforced by the current Ukrainian war.

Cengiz Arslanpay (TR/NL) – woodwinds, synthesizers
Maryanka Golovchenko (UA/NL) – vocal
Pau Sola Masafrets (Cataluña, SP/NL) – cello






Emine Bostanci is an award-winning classical kemenche- and Cretan lyra performer. Her project ‘Dareyn’ combines the mystical sound of the kemenche – originating from Istanbul and the Silk Road – and the sound of the cello in a contemporary fashion. With cellist Maya Fridman she blends their vocal talents with each others instrumental expertise plus Modar Salama on percussion. Dareyn creates dialogues where unspoken narratives are present in the imagination of each listener.

Maya Fridman: cello/zang (RU/NL)
Emine Bostanci: kemenche/Cretan lyra/zang (TR/NL)
Modar Salama: percussie set (SYR/NL)
