SOUTH-SOUTH RE-ENCOUNTERS SERIES Invites you
To Zyriab's path to New Andalucia: Arab Music and Flamenco in New York
Saturday, April 28, 2007, 9:00 PM $15 ($10 Students with valid ID)
With Tarab and Gazpacho Andalu New Andalucia
In 711 A.D., Arabs crossed Gibraltar to Iberia and for the next eight centuries a tremendous exchange would take place. Great minds, ideas and art would cross the strait back and forth and create a rich mix that transcends the boundaries of religion, ethnicity and language. It is in this esthemus, this land in between, that giants like Averroes, Maimonides, Alfonso El Sabio and Zyriab would thrive. Thirteen centuries later, Gezpacho Andalú – a Flamenco group – and Tarab – an Arab ensemble – reconnect through their music in New York City. Both the time and the place of this encounter are significant: in this stifled atmosphere of war on terrorism and anti-immigration sentiment, Tarab and Gezpacho Andalú strive to reinstate New York as New Andalucia.
