WEST PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA

Al-Bustan is pleased to present an Arab Music Weekend Workshop, open to educators and musicians interested in learning Arab music with two master artists, Issam Rafea (oud) and Hafez Kotain (percussion).  Participants will be introduced to Arab modes (maqamat), rhythms (iqa’at), and styles of ornamentation and improvisation.  String players should bring their instrument and those interested in percussion will have hand drums (tableh and daff) provided.  The weekend will culminate with a short demonstration by the participants and a duo performance by Issam and Hafez.
