Implementing the unique LoLa (low latency) streaming technology, the concert “Connecting Traditions” will take place on 20 December 2019 simultaneously in two locations: at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre (EAMT) and at the Hajibeyov Baku Academy of Music.

LoLa (low latency) technology tool enables real time musical performances where musicians are physically located in remote sites (up to 5000 km) connected by advanced network services with no significant distortion or delay. Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre is the first in Estonia to use this tool and has gained rich LoLa experience since the first introduction of LoLa in Tallinn in a concert “Music without Borders” on 5 October 2017 in the framework of the 2nd Eastern Partnership Ministerial Meeting on Digital Economy.

Thanks to the EaPConnect project, LoLa is now available in Eastern Partnership countries. This project sets out to create a regional research and education network in Eastern Europe and the Southern Caucasus with the objective to decrease the digital divide, improve intra-regional connectivity and facilitate participation of local scientists, students and academics in global research and education collaborations.

Organized in connection with the EaPConnect Enlighten Your Research 2018 winning project “MIRCO: Music Instruments Renewal via Contemporary Creation” (project leader Paolo Girol, EAMT), the concert “Connecting Traditions” features top musicians from Estonia and Azerbaijan performing in real time to showcase how seamless connection the R&E networks and LoLa provide.

A world premiere of new composition for traditional instruments Kannel (EST) and Tar (AZ) by Azerbaijani composer Ilaha Qismat forms the heart of this concert. Speeches by high-level guests and performances by artists in Baku and Tallinn, Estonia, connected via R&E networks with LoLa technology will complete the event.
