ABOUT THE ARTIST

Genre: World

The Salaam-Shalom Music Project comprises distinguished artists from Chicago's Maxwell Street Klezmer Band and the Arab and Muslim professional musician community. Drawing upon the traditional melodies of the Middle East and South Asia combined with klezmer (Jewish music from Eastern Europe) and Sephardic music (Jewish music from Spain), Salaam-Shalom --which means "peace" in Arabic and Hebrew--affirms the possibilities for mutual learning, enrichment and good will among Muslims, Jews, and Christians. The band members reach out to each other and to the public to teach, learn, and celebrate their heritage through music.

The musicians include first-and second-generation artists from Egypt, Pakistan, Jordan (Palestine), and the former Soviet Union. This all-acoustic ensemble draws from the wellsprings of ancestral folk songs and dances for their creativity. The Oud (Arabic lute), Daf (hand-held drum), Ney (Arabic flute) join the violin, clarinet and double bass to create an entrancing atmosphere of spirit and spirituality.
