The Brooklyn Nomads (NYC) will perform a two-hour musical tribute to the six countries named in the March 16 travel ban – Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.This concert is an expression of support and gratitude toward the rich melting pot of the entire United States, which enabled this group to come to life.
Interpreting Middle Eastern folk music through cultural and musical backgrounds as diverse as Brooklyn itself, the Nomads put a contemporary spin on a traditional Arabic repertoire from Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, as well music from Iran, Turkey, Uzbekistan and beyond. Brass and wind, string and vocals, tap and percussion – the Nomads create a transcendent mix of voices, rich instrumentation and innovative composition.
