Baharat Collective is an ensemble dedicated to the performance of music from the Balkan and Middle East (Eastern Mediterranean) area. The group brings songs from old traditions into a new, fresh light, providing audiences with a taste of the richness and diversity of the melodies and rhythms of the region. Current repertoire includes songs from Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Iran and Egypt. The group was formed in January 2017, supported by Syn Festival Edinburgh, to perform at that year’s Festival, and has performed at various other events since. It aims to be an open space to anyone, regardless of their background or level of skill, who is committed to the ethos of the group and passionate about music-making.
