The almost inexhaustible repertoire of Ssassa includes intoxicating gypsy music from Turkey, parts of former Yugoslavia, Greece and Arab countries. The fiery music clearly expresses the direct connection to these cultures, which the group has acquired on many journeys in Europe and Turkey. The connoisseur won't miss the fact that the five musicians not only deal with old, traditional music, but are also fully familiar with modern music.
Oriental music with show
The synthesis of virtuosic, traditional music from the Orient and Western European culture leads with Ssassa to a musical intercultural firework, carried by saxophone, clarinet, singing, percussion and oud.
Not only acoustically but also visually, the group takes the audience into the fantastic world of the oriental gypsies: When the Iraqi dancer Assale Ibrahim enters the stage, there is no stopping her. Her dance reflects every rhythmic subtlety of the percussion solo. In the clarinet solo the dancer even seems to be carried on wings...
In addition to evening concerts, Ssassa regularly performs in schools, where the group offers students of all levels an intercultural participation program: "Schnabelwetzer, seven songs in seven languages". Ssassa can look back on over 1700 performances at home and abroad. These include private functions, gala events, major events such as the Gypsy Festival in the sold-out KKL Lucerne and Kongresshaus Zurich as well as a live TV appearance on Kuwait TV.
