A program consisting of pieces assembled before in Amsterdam and now in Beirut, based on improvisations using the delicate classical and modern principles of Arabic, Turkish, Persian and Western music, conceived and performed by some of the best musicians in each category. The refined sound of the Turkish kemench and the Persian setar will mix with the delicate tones of the Arabic oud and qanun, with steady support from the European double-bass.
