DESCRIPTION

 Zawaya and Aswat invite you to join us for an interactive musical event and concert directed by virtuoso violinist, multi-instrumentalist and singer, Younes el Makboul. Learn to sing, play Arab percussion instruments and participate in Arab dance circles with the Aswat Ensemble and other artists from the Bay Area’s premier Arab music ensemble.

Performances will include a recitation of the Qur’an (tajweed) and a performance by the Aswat Youth Ensemble, which will captivate your musical senses—and your visual senses, too, by wearing costumes from the Arab world.

The program will culminate with a presentation of sacred songs by the Aswat Sacred Music Ensemble. Lebanese artist Rana Mroue will respond to questions from the audience.
