ASWAT Concert Celebrating Egyptian Composer Mohammed Abdel Wahab

ASWAT Concert Celebrating Egyptian Composer Mohammed Abdel Wahab

Sunday, June 3 from 3-5 pm
College of San Mateo Theater
1700 West Hillsdale Boulevard, San Mateo, CA

ASWAT brings you a concert celebrating the work of musical genius, prolific composer, and innovator Mohammed Abdel Wahab [masked]). Abdel Wahab reshaped the musical landscape of the Arab world in the twentieth century. He brought innovation to Arab music by incorporating the use of Western instruments and rhythms in his arrangements and compositions. While this seems commonplace today, it was avant garde when Abdel Wahab first decided to do it. Roughly 20 years after Abdel Wahab's death, his music lives on as classics in their own right in the Arab world.

Aswat pays tribute to Abdel Wahab on Sunday, June 3, 2012 at 3 pm at the College of San Mateo Theatre. Directed by Maestro Omar Abbad, the program includes Abdel Wahab's instrumental compositions, the songs he composed and sang himself, and songs he composed for other singers, demonstrating Abdel Wahab's growth and development throughout his career.
