Groove to the desert beats of a nine-piece ensemble that brings to life North Africa’s Sahara region, crossing cultural borders and genres. Each member of the ensemble offers a deeply personal performance grounded in their connections to the countries of the Maghreb— Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Sudan, and Egypt. The Maghreb is home to the largest population of African Muslims, who share the written language of Arabic and its different spoken dialects, adding to the musicality of the region’s traditional songs.
This performance is presented in collaboration with Batuki Music for our 2019/20 Performing Arts season, Listening to Each Other, which pays tribute to the role of the performative arts in connecting communities, preserving culture, and spurring social change. It’s also part of our fall season — Africa! — which explores new dimensions of the vast and complex continent with a world-class lineup of art, performers, and speakers.
