Dr. Ramzi Salti: Stanford Lecture on Arabic Music (including video excerpts)



Dr. Ramzi Salti, Lecturer at Stanford University and Radio Host of 'Arabology' on KZSU 90.1 FM, began a weeklong series of talks titled "Ya'ani: Week of Music, Culture, and Languages of the Middle East" at Stanford on May 13, 2013 with a lecture titled '"Breaking with Tradition: An Examination of Alternative Arabic Music and Video Clips." The talk attempted to briefly showcase groundbreaking musicians and artists in Arabic music from the 1960's to the present, including (but not limited to) music that has fueled the Arab Spring.

Here are some segments from the talk/dinner which took place at the Bechtel International Center on the Stanford University campus on May 13, 2013 from 6-7:30 pm.
