San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet and their nonprofit Kronos Performing Arts Association will present KRONOS FESTIVAL 2017: Here and Now at the SFJAZZ Center, Thursday, February 2nd - Saturday, February 4th. With six concerts over three days, Kronos’ third annual hometown music festival will showcase the innovations of the Bay Area’s contemporary music community. With Kronos taking center stage for three evening concerts, as well as a Saturday morning family concert, performances will feature some of the region’s most engaging composers – from Minimalism pioneer Terry Riley to renowned Indian violinist Kala Ramnath – and transcendent guest musicians – from the breathtaking Persian singer Mahsa Vahdat to the ethereal sounds of traditional Vietnamese instrumentalist Vân-Ánh Võ.

This year’s festival will highlight the ingenious and arresting work of Iranian-American composer and San Francisco resident Sahba Aminikia, who will serve as the festival’s artist-in-residence. His work will be featured throughout the festival, as well as at an intimate afternoon survey that concludes with a conversation with the 35-year-old composer. “My music is inspired by human stories around me,” says Aminikia. “I am struck by generalizations about cultures unknown to us. We hear mostly about hardship and oppression, despite the fact that people of every nation find their own balance between hardship and pleasure. I would like to demonstrate a drop of the ocean of beauty that exists in every one of these cultures, including those in my home country. To make strong human connections and build understanding, I do this by telling stories. I am a storyteller. My compositions are, in fact, like One Thousand and One Nights: a human story within a human story within another human story.”
