Concert with Simona Abdallah

SPACE and Mela invite you to a special concert with the internationally-acclaimed percussionist Simona Abdallah concluding The Question of Syria – Doomed by Hope conference.

Simona plays Arabic percussion, primarily the Darbuka, a goblet-shaped drum. She fuses her ancestral Arabic rhythms with House, Electronica and World music.

The Darbuka is considered solely a masculine instrument, and is traditionally always played by men. That makes Simona the first female musician from an Arabic background to break the tradition with an internationally acclaimed success to follow.

Join us to listen to Simona’s rhythms as well as reflections on her experience in a short talk before the concert! Invite your friends on Facebook!
