East of the River: Hamsa
Music from Andalusia, the Ottoman Empire, North Africa, and the Sephardic Diaspora
East of the River performs music from the Near East from Jewish and Ottoman traditions of the 13th through 18th centuries. This program consists of songs and dances from liturgical and folk traditions as well as examples of classical instrumental music from the Ottoman court. These various types of music aren’t built with Western musical conventions, but rather, use the system of microtonal melodic modes referred to as the Arabic maqam.
