Watch our latest webcast with Journalists Hanadi Hajana and Khamis Suliman reflecting on music, Sudan, Syria which took place on Thursday 18th July! We also had a brief interview with musician Paul Gwiazda who gave a quick preview of the gig on 1st August.
Hanadi and Khamis will be working on developing their pieces on music, Sudan, Syria over the next couple of months. According to Wikipedia, ” Sudan has a rich and unique musical culture that has been through chronic instability and repression during the modern history of Sudan.” Also, ” Syria was long one of the Arab world‘s centers for musical innovation in the field of classical Arab music; for example, the city of Aleppo is known for its muwashshah music, which was specially conceived to accompany Andalusianmuwashshah poetry.” This should be fascinating stuff!
