ORIENTAL MUSIC - THE SAMA QUARTET
Date & Time: 14-06-2017 19:30 - 21:00
Event Code: 1
Location: Christ Church
Description: Sama literally means 'listening deeply, intently'. As is the tradition in Palestine and in the wider Middle-East, the music takes us on a journey through instrumental dialogues and improvisations. Sama's playful flute and Arabic percussion weave between the moody buzuk and the resonant qanun, within the rhythm set by the bass guitar. With serenity and artistic integrity, Sama's rich sound will evoke an array of sensual enchantments. The quartet are touring the UK and are sponsored in Frome by Frome Friends of Palestine. Refreshments and Palestinian products available.
