The event on April 16 was by all accounts a success, standing room only and the Middle Eastern people sang along with the Arabic songs which was GREAT. here is one clip, to a Renaissance Spanish song chosen to accompany reading about the Emir’s trip to Europe. Here is another clip, one of the super Arabic songs sung by Yara Salah al-Din.
please come and listen to what promises to be some beautiful Ottoman and Middle Eastern music, played by people who REALLY know their stuff.. also some reading by me from the book, hopefully not too much to interfere with the music.
anyway all are invited:
