Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra

Sun. 18 July 2021 11:15 - 12:15, Het Weiland

The rich Arabo-Andalusian repertoire, the mystical Eastern music, the refined Arabic improvisation music and the folk music from Maghreb: that is the wide territory of the Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra. At Wonderfeel they will show a tribute to the world famous singers Fairouz and Oum Khaltoum. The Soloist is Baidar al Basri, who studied opera in Damascus as well as The Hague. The difference? ‘Western opera music is sung from the head, Arabic music is sung from the heart.’
