Delhi to Damascus is a celebration of the historical and cultural ties between India and Syria. The project’s repertoire explores traditional Indian ragas; the melodic interplay of Arabic Maqams, Sufi poems, lyrical Thumri and Dadra (traditional and old forms of singing); and classical rhythm cycles and pulsating folk grooves. It takes listeners on a mesmerizing journey of exquisite poetry and lyrical exposition along the winding roads from a time long ago. Funded by the Robert J. Strider Concert Fund.
