Hathor Consort

Just like spirituality, music opens the door to the indefinable. Hathor Consort explores in sound and video the Sufi music from Turkey and Syria, which found its way to Europe in the Middle Ages. In search of the universality of musical traditions, the collective led by gambist Romina Lischka embraces the ceremonial practice of Sufi dancers and their devotion to dhikr: a prayer that opens the door to surrender and enlightenment.

About the performers

The Hathor Consort was founded in 2012 by Romina Lischka. Under her artistic direction, the consort devotes itself to Renaissance and Baroque music centred around the viola da gamba. At the same time, the group seeks new ways of expression in which this refined chamber music repertoire of European origin is combined in multidisciplinary and intercultural concert forms with early music from other continents and with contemporary music, world music and dance.
