Summer at MAXXI. MusicRomAraBeat with Moni Ovadia. The Maghreb meets the Balkans
MAXXI square – € 10 10 free individual seats reserved for myMAXXI card holders by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org by the day before the event
The exceptional ensemble of Maghrebi, Romanian Roma and Italian musicians combines Arabic melodies and gypsy rhythms, with the Mediterranean at the centre.
The Arab civilisation, spread throughout the Mediterranean, has filled the western world with architecture, literature, painting and music. Its melodies and instruments have profoundly influenced the history and musical sensibility of the West, from Istanbul to the Balkans, from the Maghreb kingdoms to Sicily and Andalusia.
Alongside the Arab musicians who composed and spread this repertoire, there were other excellent interpreters of this very rich tradition: the Roma. The artists moving from North Africa to Andalusia and those moving from Turkey to the Balkans availed themselves of the collaboration of local instrumentalists who were often gitanos (in Spain) and tsigani (in Romania, Bulgaria and Greece).
Moni Ovadia, who will use his emblematic voice to tell the story of Greek sailors and Sephardic parties accompanied by the spectacular musicians on stage, will be MAXXI’s special guest.
