Journey from Syria

Nov 20, 2015 - Nov 23, 2015
Venue:Recital Hall

Formed by a group of professional musicians trained in traditional, classical and jazz music, the Syrian ensemble Hewar expresses a poignant reminiscence of home in Damascus as ensemble members study and give performances in their new hometown Chicago. By incorporating scales, melodies and rhythms of the Islamic maqam melody type, the Hewar uses combinations of ouds, clarinets, cellos, double bass and percussion instruments to demonstrate the persistent beauty, at times subtle and reserved, with moments spirited and vivacious, of Middle-East instrumental music.
