IAN MAKSIN at the ART GALLERY KAFE  

CELLO FOR PEACE 

AUGUST 4, 8PM

127 FRONT ST. WOOD DALE, IL

From Balkan rhythms to West African groves, and from Argentine milonga to music of Mongolian shamans, Maksin magically connects and brings together some of the most diverse elements of world music into a unique fusion, using his cello as the unifying force. Using loop pedal and other electronics, he augments the sound of his instrument into a virtual orchestra creating a one-of-a-kind listening experience. Singing in 30 languages from Arabic and Farsi to Polish and Ukrainian, and from French and Italian to Turkish and Mongolian, Maksin takes his listener on a most musical journey around the globe. 

In this concert, Maksin will play original music from his two most recent releases “The Alchemist” (2021) and “Sempre” (2019) as well as other new compositions that have not been recorded yet. He will also sing from his collection of songs around the globe including French, Spanish, Italian, Ukrainian, Polish, Yiddish, Hebrew, Arabic, Armenian, Farsi and others. And last but not the least, he will share his latest single “Rain Again” ("Знов Дощi”) which he dedicated to the people of Ukraine. Portion of the ticket and merch sales from this tour will be directed to benefit forwellbeing.org a humanitarian relief organization in Ukraine.

BREAKING BOUNDARIES both musical and geographical, cellist, composer and multilingual vocalist IAN MAKSIN has created his own unique style by blending elements of different genres and traditional music from around the globe in a new way using his cello as the main unifying force.

ONE-MAN ORCHESTRA: Ian Maksin is breaking geographic boundaries by blending many genres and styles using the cello as the main common denominator. In addition to cello, he used an electronic device called the loop pedal, which allows him to create "loops" or layers by recording and replaying his own playing in real time.
