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.

In a bid to review the International System of Units (SI), the International Bureau of Weights and Measures gathered at the 26th General Conference on Weights and Measures on November 16, 2018. Sixty member states have voted for changing four out of seven basic units of measurement. The kilogram is among the modified. Before describing the key points, let us have a closer look into the kilogram and its history.

Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
