Add to Calendar 23-03-2012 23-03-2012 15 Musical Performance: Tunisian Vocalist Sonia M'Barek Sings Andalusian Muwashahat Tunisian Vocalist Sonia M'Barek in a Concert of Andalusian Muwashahat with Hanna Khoury - violin Kinan Idnawi - oud Kinan Abou-afach - cello Hicham Chami - qanun Hafez El Ali Kotain - percussion "Sonia M'Barek began singing maluf (traditional Tunisian court music) as a child under the tutelage of her grandmother. Its affinity with like styles in Algeria, Libya and Morocco voices the music's historical origins in southern Andalusia, before the Reconquest drove Muslims and Jews from Spain in 1492. Many of the exiles settled in the medinas of North Africa, bringing their musical heritage. Maluf was and remains primarily a male domain, making Sonia M'Barek a rare female soloist of the genre. She trained in the Tunis conservatory, and has performed widely in Tunisia and the neighboring Maghreb. While rooted in the traditional maluf repertoire, M'Barek steps beyond it by delving into the sharqi or cabaret music (the so-called "belly dance") of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey. She also pens many of her own compositions, and collaborates with younger artists who repudiate the commercial formulas of popular pan-Arabic music. M'Barek possesses a smoky, soul-piercing voice that resonates with the euphoric, transcendental quality singers strive to project and listeners esteem - "tarab", in Arabic. This studio recording deftly pairs M'Barek with a small classical chamber orchestra (takht) of oud, kementché, ney, qanoun, violin, violoncello and percussion. The result is a passionate contemporary exposition of the Iberian, North African and Levantine musical nexus, one audibly rooted in medieval Andalusia." - Michael Stone - Rootsworld, in review of Takht. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=104470 Proshanky Auditorium, CUNY Graduate Center true DD/MM/YYYY
