The Alwan Arab Music Ensemble 

When: Sat., April 29, 7 p.m. 2017
Phone: (845) 257-3844
Price: $10
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 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.
