Wednesday, April 3, 7:30PM, Bowker Auditorium
Ranging from the sweet sounds of the Oud to pop and driving Rai-rock, the Arab North African Spring highlights the full range of Arab music combining the best known male and female young musicians from Tunisia, Libya, Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Palestine and Lebanon on tour as one ensemble. These musicians are the embodiment of a new generation of Arab and Arab-American artists, a generation that not only brings together elements of both cultures in their music/lyrics, but also creates a new brand of music that is uniquely hip and equally innovative – music that is neither Westernized Arabic nor Arabized Western, but something brand new. With a focus on the ideas of “us” and “today,” these songs speak for freedom and choices.
