Bushra El-Turk

born: ?
country: United Kingdom

Bushra El-Turk’s music of ‘ironic’, ‘arresting’ and ‘limitless imagination’ forebears the influence of her Lebanese roots and straddles Eastern and Western idioms, all the while leaning towards the absurd and the theatrical.

Selected by the BBC as one of the most inspiring 100 Women, globally, Bushra’s music has been both performed and broadcast on radio and television in the UK, Europe, the Middle-East, the Americas and Australia. These include collaborations with the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO Panufnik Scheme 2012), BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, Orchestre National de Lorraine (France), Lebanese Philharmonic Orchestra, the Latvian Radio Choir and the multiethnic Atlas Ensemble (Holland), amongst others. Performances have been at venues most notably including the Lincoln Centre (New York), Birmingham Symphony Hall, Bridgewater Hall (Manchester), and the Southbank and the Barbican (London). She is artistic director and leader of Ensemble Zar, which is a fresh and fearless cross-genre ensemble whose mission is to express the Middle Eastern artistic temperament in its rawest form, and experiment with new sounds in the process.
