Aswat, the premier Arab music ensemble of the Bay Area, proudly announces its concert to be held Sunday, May 5, 2013 at the College of San Mateo Theatre from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.

In celebration of women in Arab music, Zawaya presents the Bay Area's premier Arab music ensemble, Aswat, in a concert that pays tribute to two of the Arab world's premier female musical legends: "The Star of East", Umm Kulthum (1898/1904-1975), and "The Jewel of Lebanon", Fairuz (born 1935).

The program exclusively and strictly presents only music from Umm Kulthum and Fairuz, and equal attention is given to the music of both.
