Verkadefabriek | Den Bosch

November 9, 2018 20:30 - 22:30 Verkadefabriek | Den Bosch

The first concert in the Ud Festival programme of Omar Bashir is a collaboration with musical big guns Tony Overwater (double bass), Ruven Ruppik (percussion), Ahmed El Maai (qanun, and musical director of the Amsterdams Andalusisch Orkest) and Abderrahim Semlali (violin, maestro of the Amsterdams Andalusisch Orkest).

Together, they take us on a musical journey from historic Moorish Spain through to 1980s Baghdad. Bashir will also perform his most recent solo work. The second concert is a collaboration with renowned pianist Martin Fondse, and emphasizes the fluid transition between jazz and ud compositions.
