Event description
Ertegun House presents internationally acclaimed Arabic music ensemble, Oxford Maqam.

About this Event

★★★★ "Revolutionary... Powerfully atmospheric" - Songlines Magazine

Whilst the Arabic music scene is filled with innovators of popular music, Oxford Maqam are innovators of classical Arabic music. Their recovery and revival of heritage works is a highly original process, and their concerts offer a rare opportunity to experience live renditions of a music steeped in Arab heritage. Offering fresh and entertaining recreations, they have captured the imaginations of UK, Europe and Middle Eastern audiences alike.

Pioneering Oxford Maqam comprises vocalists and musicians who are renowned experts in their field of Egyptian music and song of the 19th and 20th centuries. They first met over ten years ago, and now regularly sell out venues both at home and internationally, taking their album tour from London's Kings Place to the Kuwait Opera House. Their selfmade album, described as ‘revolutionary’ by Songlines magazine, used recording techniques from over one hundred years ago. They embark this year on their first Australia tour.

This event is generously hosted by Ertegun House.
