Ali Amr Experiment: Jazz with modern Middle Eastern vibe

  • August 1, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • ICA

Palestinian-born Ali Amr takes a journey into an exotic blend of original jazz with a modern Middle Eastern vibe, influenced by touches of flamenco to bring a flair for the unexpected. He gives a mesmerizing performance of vocals and qanun, backed by keys, bass, and percussion. FREE ADMISSION: Admission to the ICA is always free on ICA Free Thursday Nights

This event is part of a series of free ICA summer concerts, Harborwalk Sounds.

Museum admission is also free.

This event is also a co-event with the Boston Culture Club Meetup group, .


The concert takes place in the rear of the building, the back entrance to the museum.

There are a series of steps and a wide-space area where the musicians set-up their stage.

These steps face the water and have a gorgeous view of the Boston harbor.

For meeting purposes, lets meet at the bottom (front-row), center  of the steps at 6:30pm.

This venue is not that big and I am confident finding the group will be easy, however I just want to warn you of the possibility that you may miss-connect with the group if you are late.

Organizers need to have an accurate attendance count to plan events. We need to know who and how many to expect.

Please show-up if you have reserved "YES"

I look forward in enjoying this event with the group.

    The band was good, and the docent tour of the ICA exhibit was interesting. But I missed meeting most of the group.

    I got there early and sat on the first row of steps, but left when it was filling up with non-meetup guests. So I thought I had the wrong time or meeting location information. I ended up joining in with the Boston Singles Meet-up. I did meet a few of the Nomad group as they asked me if I knew how to find the rest of the group (LOL).

    Thanks for reminding us. As I am still in New Mexico, it's obvious I cannot attend. So I change my RSVP to NO

    I know that many of you reserved "yes" awhile ago and that your plans may have changed since. I would like to know who and how many to expect, please double check your schedule and if you are no longer able to attend, please change your reservation to "not attending".

    Meeting time is at 6:30pm and the meeting place is at the bottom (front-row), center of the steps of the main seating area. The seating area is the series of steps that face the water and have a gorgeous view of the Boston harbor.

    I expect a lot of people at this event. There will be multiple Meetup groups. So far we have 60 people signed up for this group and at least 25 people signed up with the Boston Culture Club.
