ASWAT, the premier Arab arts and music ensemble of the Bay Area, proudly announces its long anticipated spring concert to be held Sunday, June 5th, 2011 at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. With a special focus on the music of Palestine, the matinee concert will devote almost half of the program to both folkloric and traditional Palestinian village songs commemorating life and tradition as expressed in old songs dating back to a time before wars, destruction and displacement. Aswat will also perform timeless classical compositions from Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria. Guest artists joining ASWAT will be international peace troubadour David Rovics and acclaimed Syrian singer Mohannad Mchallah, who got standing ovations at his recent ASWAT performance in April 2011 at the College of San Mateo.

This special performance titled “Soul… Tradition… Love - An Evening of Folkloric and Classical Arab Music from Palestine and Beyond” represents a major milestone for Aswat, celebrating almost eleven years of musical history in the Bay Area. The June 5th performance will be directed by renowned Jordanian conductor and oudist Omar Abbad, who has spent the past five months training and directing the ensemble. ASWAT and its founding organization Zawaya invite you all to a truly special afternoon of beautiful Arabic music from Palestine and beyond.
