Arabic Music Concert: Aswat Tribute to Umm Kulthum & Fairuz

Aswat Tribute to Umm Kulthum & Fairuz

In celebration of women in Arab music, Zawaya presents the Bay Area's premier Arab music ensemble, Aswat, in a concert that pays tribute to two of the Arab world's premier female musical legends: "The Star of East", Umm Kulthum (1898/[masked]), and "The Jewel of Lebanon", Fairuz (born 1935).

The program exclusively and strictly presents only music from Umm Kulthum and Fairuz, and equal attention is given to the music of both. The program features such songs as Umm Kulthum's "Amsak" and Fairuz's "Muwashshahat" in masterful arrangements by Egypt's esteemed conductor, Maestro Sary Dowidar.

The performance will be at the theater inside the College of San Mateo, San Mateo, CA

    Amir, I'm not sure I'll be able to meet anyone before the concert because I'm actually reviewing the event for Aslan Media so I may be backstage before the concert starts. But, you can meet others from Yalla if you like. Or, if you can recognize me from my photo, please introduce yourself to me. It's going to be an amazing concert!
