Aswat Presents Aleppo Alive Concert



Aswat’s Qudud Halabiyyah concert is directed by Fathi Aljarah and will take place on Saturday, June 14, 2014 at 7:30 pm at McKenna Theatre at San Francisco State University (SFSU).  Tickets are available online and at the door

“Aleppo Alive” will consist of a “Wasleh”, a suite of songs and instrumental pieces in the Aleppine tradition, which is threatened existentially by the current civil war in Syria. It is a concert borne of a sentiment to help save the endangered musical heritage of Syria – especially of Aleppo, a historically significant centuries-old artistic hub of civilizations. Since Zawaya’s mandate is to preserve, present, and promote Arab music, at no point in time is this mandate more relevant than the present with Aleppo’s ongoing destruction.

Aswat: Tribute Concert to Umm Kulthum and Fairuz


On Sunday, May 5, 2013 Zawaya presented the Bay Area's premier Arab music ensemble, Aswat, in a concert that paid tribute to two of the Arab world's premier female musical legends: "The Star of East", Umm Kulthum (1898/1904-1975), and "The Jewel of Lebanon", Fairuz (born 1935).  The concert took place at the College of San Mateo Theatre in San Mateo.

The program exclusively and strictly presented only music from Umm Kulthum and Fairuz, and equal attention was given to the music of both. The program featured such songs as Umm Kulthum's "Ansak" and Fairuz's "Muwashshahat".

This is just a simple edit from that concert, with part of an instrument solo and then all Aswat members performing:
