MTC Kids Jam - Oran Etkin's Timbalooloo 'Finding Friends Far From Home'

Presented by Midwest Trust Center at Johnson County Community College at Midwest Trust Center at Johnson County Community College, Overland Park

January 21, 2023

This performance tells the story of Clara Net (a clarinet), who meets new instrument friends from around the world and creates new music as the cultures meet. It is accompanied by a new album, recorded on location in Zimbabwe, Czech Republic, China and Turkey as Etkin toured. This project further redefines the creative process by gathering the fruits of these encounters into one album, which tells a tale of friendship and understanding. Voted No. 1 Rising Star Clarinetist in Downbeat Critics’ Poll, Etkin is regularly invited to perform at major festivals and theaters throughout the world. Over the past two years, he has reimagined what touring can mean – taking time off between shows to live with traditional mbira masters in Zimbabwe and building collaborative projects with Roma (Gypsy) musicians in Czech Republic. Timbalooloo creates unique and engaging performances for audiences of all ages at major concert venues throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia, Africa and South America.
