Madison World Music Festival: Oyme
September 11, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Madison World Music Festival
Presented By Wisconsin Union Theater
Oyme | Workshop: 3pm | Concert 7:45pm
Having performed at the largest international festivals – WOMAD, Wild Mint, Creation of the World and Movement, Oyme takes the Erzya and Moksha musical folklore traditions as a basis, while experimenting with contemporary musical styles. They recreates the traditions and customs of the Mordovians, meshed with pop fusion, percussion, progressive electronic sound, or a symbiosis of folklore tradition with the rock and classical drum kit.
On the basis of their own ethnographic expeditions, the members of OYME reconstruct ancient rituals and national holidays, which are often interactive with the audience.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Madison World Music Festival is a virtual event! Sign up to receive email reminders about workshops and concerts.
