Top Palestinian Musicians come to Frome
Sama’, a quartet of the finest Palestinian classical musicians, are on tour in the UK this month and Frome Friends of Palestine are delighted to say that they’ll be coming to Frome.
“Sama” literally means ‘listening deeply, intently’. As is the tradition in Palestine and in the wider Middle-East, the music takes us on a journey through instrumental dialogues and improvisations. The Sama’ Quartet’s playful flute and Arabic percussion weave between the moody buzuk and the resonant qanun, within the rhythm set by the bass guitar. With serenity and artistic integrity, Sama’s rich sound will evoke an array of sensual enchantments.
The leader is Ibrahim Atari, coordinator of Arabic music at the Edward Said National Conservatoire of Music.
Tickets: £8.00 / £5.00 concessions.
