Since earliest times, music has always had a ritual purpose in human society, but these ritualistic functions are often forgotten in the hustle and bustle of the modern world. We’ll play music by composers Ionel Petroi, Ross Edwards and Tan Dun who still think of the ceremonial importance music can play in our lives.
