Flapper Swing

Concert

November 17, 2016 / 20:00

Complementing Pera Film's "Tune In!" program, Istanbul based quintet Flapper Swing will perform a concert on 17 November Thursday at Pera Café.

Flapper Swing
Flapper Swing is an Istanbul based quintet playing Django Reinhardt’s style of jazz, “Jazz Manouche”. These five musicians were brought together by their passion for taunting acoustic sounds of gypsy swing and they are focusing on 1920s and 1930s repertoire, played with authentic sound of that period. In their performances the band is striving to bring the audience an atmosphere of roaring twenties and ballroom parties, the “Golden Era” of Jazz.

Held at Pera Café, the concert is free of admissions. Space is limited, drop in.

A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards.

The Success of an Artist

The Success of an Artist

Pera Museum presents an exhibition of French artist Félix Ziem, one of the most original landscape painters of the 19th century. The exhibition Wanderer on the Sea of Light presents Ziem as an artist who left his mark on 19th century painting and who is mostly known for his paintings of Istanbul and Venice, where the city and the sea are intertwined.
