When words fail, music continues to speak. In light of the recent world events, Ian Maksin continues his Cello for Peace Tour.  In these concerts he will perform music from his most recent release "Amor Renatus" (Rebirth of Love) as well as love songs in Arabic and Hebrew, Farsi and Ladino,  Turkish and Armenian, Ukrainian and Russian in an attempt to reunite the world and create peace through music. Portion of the proceeds from ticket and CD sales will be donated to humanitarian relief funds that help civilians in areas affected by war. 

Join renowned cellist, composer, and multilingual vocalist Ian Maksin for another amazing musical journey in search of light, love, and empowerment.  Inspired by music of Vivaldi, Mozart, Piazzolla and fused with traditional music from Africa, the Middle East and the Balkans, his new album “Amor Renatus” elevates you to a new realm outside the dimensions of time, place and identity, giving an opportunity to process deep, dark emotions, to ultimately rediscover peace and to find enlightenment and healing for the soul. 

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.  

He uses the loop pedal and other electronic devices to augment the sound of the cello and turn it into a virtual orchestra.  He sings pop and traditional songs from around the globe in more than 30 and writes his own originals in at least four.  He has released several albums of original music for cello inspired by his world travels and collaborations with native musicians.  

Apart from performing the entire new album, in the second half of the concert Ian Maksin will perform other original instrumental compositions as well as traditional songs from Maksin's collection of over 200 songs in 31 languages. 

This Concert presented by EventMuse in collaboration with The Artsland Foundation as part of "The Tomorrow's Classics Festival"
