Bassam Saba: "A Wonderful Land" Debut Concert
September 27, 2009
On, Sunday, September 27th, The Center for Arabic Culture will present the Bassam Saba Ensemble in their Boston debut of "Wonderful Land." One of the nation's leading figures of Arabic music, Saba is a world-renowned nay virtuoso and multi- instrumentalist, performing on oud, violin, buzuq, saz and western classical flute. He will be presenting his album "The Wonderful Land" for the first time in Boston. Each piece of Saba's music paints a different picture of his life's work, experience and travel; it is an electrifying mix of classical Arabic and gypsy Turkish tradition infused with hints of western classical arrangement.
