REMIX: New Sounds from Arab Lands celebrates new musical fusions

REMIX: New Sounds from Arab Lands celebrates new musical fusionsBy Debra Filcman: A shared spirit of musical exploration unites the diverse group of musicians behind the upcoming performance of REMIX: New Sounds from Arab Lands.

The artists will come to campus this week for a three-day residency as part of the MusicUnitesUS program, which promotes the understanding and appreciation of other cultures through music. REMIX brings together distinguished performers and composers from Syria, Lebanon and Tunisia who create music inspired by the cultural heritage of the Arab lands.

The public concert, part of the music department’s World Music Series, will take place in Slosberg Recital Hall on Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. Residency curator Ted Levin will offer a pre-concert lecture at 7 p.m.
