Dear friend of Arkadia,

Ishtar is an international and multicultural ensemble made up by European and Iraqi musicians, whom started performing together in 2015.

In this occasion, Ishtar will perform as a trio with Lotta-Maria Pitkänen (FIN) at the violin, Valeria Conte (ITA) at the clarinet and voice, and Javier Sanchez Perez (ESP) at the bass.



Warm regards,


Entrance is free but a donation of €3 (or more!) to fund the event is suggested and would be most welcome. If you have no loose change or coins we gladly accept payment via Visa Electron or Mastercard etc.!

 The three musicians are all GLOMAS master’s graduated (www.glomas.net) and have met during the studies, bounding to a meaningful friendship and professional collaboration expanding to other various musical projects.

Their repertoire is made up by instrumental tunes and folk songs, tapping into Flamenco, Arabic, and Yiddish musical cultures.

Their performance is a fresh, lively and rich journey through the warm sonorities of Middle-East, Eastern-Europe, and the Iberian Peninsula.

Ishtar has recently collaborated to the theatre production “Kaikki Perheemme Päivälliset – avauksia empatiasta” at Helsinki Theatre Academy.

This event is brought to you from the International School of Music, Finland
