Local performer and scholar Fred Stubbs discusses the history, repertoire, and playing technique of the ney, a cane flute of classical Arabian and Turkish music that is blown obliquely across its open end. Joined by Shanteri Kamashi Baliga on ney, voice, and bendir (hand drum) Stubbs demonstrates instruments from his own collection, and a 19th-century ney belonging to the MFA will be on hand for comparison.
