At the center of this performance is ETHEL’s own adaptation of Ennio Morricone’s moving score to the 1986 film, The Mission. Nominated for an Academy Award, and winning the Golden Globe, Morricone’s score deals with cross-cultural complexities fueled by the quest for redemption against the backdrop of the jungles of South America.
Also featured are ETHEL’s extraordinary setting of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Ghorak Dhanda Ho — a heartfelt discourse of faith in poetry and song (Pakistani Qawwali), a theatrical spirit-play Mare Jatralu (Hindu Kirtan), Zuni and Hawaiian ritual sun chants, and O Frondens Virga by the 12th century German abbess Hildegard von Bingen, a voice of peace and clarity from the deep past.
