Sunday, 2/9, 2-3:30 PM, Chicago Arab Music Ensemble

Arabic music is thought to be exotic, foreign to the ear, yet it is one of the roots of the Western tradition, distinct yet inseparable from the music of Europe and the New World. CAME explores the songs, the instruments, the styles, and most importantly, the people who make the beautiful sounds of the Arabic world to reveal the shared musical history of East and West. This program is brought to you in partnership with River Forest Township.
