Les Arrivants presented by Rainshadow Concerts

Rainshadow Concerts presents Les Arrivants on Saturday, July 13 at 7:30pm, 7pm doors. Tickets are $30 in advance at ticketstorm.com/e/29961/t or $35 cash or check at the door.

Les Arrivants (The Arrivals) is comprised of Amichai Ben Shalev (bandoneon), Abdul-Wahab Kayyali (oud), and Hamin Honari (percussion), three musicians who settled in Montreal during the pandemic.

The repertoire of Les Arrivants has developed mirrors that of their resettlement experience. It is informed by the traditions the instrumentalists have mastered throughout their careers: Argentine Tango, Classical Arabic music, and traditional Persian rhythms. It equally reflects the musical possibilities that can only emerge out of a cosmopolitan centre such as Montreal. In other words, Les Arrivants has created an introspective sonic experience that depicts the relationships and views of newcomers to Montreal, while channeling complex emotions associated with migration and travel.

Their music captures the highs and lows of the resettlement experience, the nostalgia and longing for places and people left behind, and the search for new comforts and goals. It also expresses the joys of seeing friendly faces in times of great uncertainty and turmoil, and anger at global injustices and inequalities exacerbated by the pandemic.
