Description

Six contemporary masters of a broad range of musical idioms weave together folk, popular, and art music of the Arab world, highlighting styles and repertoire from Iraq, Palestine, Syria and Egypt.

The Alwan Ensemble features: Amir ElSaffar: Trumpet Santur Vocals | Dena ElSaffar: Viola | Firas Zreik: Qanun | George Ziadeh: Oud Vocals | Layth Sidiq: Violin | Naseem Al Atrash: Cello | Tareq Rantisi: Percussion

The Alwan Arab Music Ensemble delivers a joyful and transporting feast of well-loved popular songs from the greater Arab World, built around mesmerizing textures of rhythmic and improvisational intensity. Their performance evokes ambiances of Cairo, Baghdad, al-Quds and Aleppo, but more importantly that of contemporary New York with its own vibrant Arab American artistic and intellectual community.
