More than fifteen musicians of different nationalities will meet at the Liceu Conservatory to showcase Syria’s cultural wealth.
Two students from the Liceu Conservatory have brought together fifteen musicians of different nationalities to protest against war and conflicts. Guitarist Ahmad Diab and soprano Aseel Massoud (Athrodeel) have named this project Love in Syria. Through it they hope to show the world the rich cultural and musical heritage of their country, Syria. They believe instruments resonate more than weapons at a time when what we need most is peace and respect. To do so, they’ve created an interesting combination of conventional orchestra instruments and those that are more traditional in Syrian culture, such as percussion or “kanun”. So, we will have the opportunity to hear violins, guitars, piano, cellos, harp and electric bass played by expert musicians. Plus, the singer will take us straight to the heart of her home country so that everyone in the audience can experience and understand her history first hand.
Love in Syria will take place on Thursday 2 May at 8:30 pm. It will be at the Liceu Conservatory Auditorium, on Carrer Nou de la Rambla. The programme, in addition to traditional Syrian music, will also feature other genres, including modern and flamenco fusion.
Tickets cost €10 and there are several ways to get a discount. You can get yours on the Liceu Conservatory website.
