Fresh from an exhilarating European Tour through the breathtaking cities of Delft, Trondheim and Szczecin, award-winning composer Tze Toh and TO Ensemble return with brand new works that weave an intriguing tapestry of musical tales within Germanic, Nordic, Slavic and Asian cultures.
Experience the splendour of these diverse cultures through a gorgeous soundscape presented in TO ensemble's unique musical language - an exciting contemporary fusion that bring together the grandeur of film music and also groundbreaking live collective jazz and carnatic improvisation with soundscape design.
Led by award-winning composer Tze Toh, the concert features Lazar T.Sebastine (Indian violin), Teo Boon Chye (sax), Christina Zhou (violin), Wendy Phua (e.bass), Masato Miyata (bass) and Tze Toh himself (piano, keyboard+MacBook).
Gallery and video highlights coming soon!
After the success of the recent concert Oumuamua, we will be performing the music in the Spoiwa Kultury Festival in Szczecin (Poland) in end June, and will also be crowdfunding the album. Stay tuned for updates on both!
We create original works that celebrate both diversity and harmony - we believe our world is greater than the sum of its parts. We understand music, like life itself is a continuous journey of change, growth, evolution. We dream of a united world, and aspire to share stories that connect us all. We believe in the human potential. We celebrate the coming together of cultures. We look to the past to discover the future.
