Here is also the chance to support the musicians in these times and donate directly in a one time donation of € 2 or more:
The Madar Ensemble, including Palestinian ud player Nizar Rohana and Dutch bass player Tony Overwater, performs during this special evening with a trio consisting of Lebanese singer Rima Khcheich, clarinetist Maarten Ornstein and lute player Mike Fentross.
Together the ensembles present an overview of the ud. They will play works from the classical Arabic muwashshah and the Dutch Renaissance traditions, as well as contemporary compositions by Rohana, Ornstein and Overwater. Thus, Arab music, renaissance and jazz merge into a unique new sound.
