Arab Women in Music: The Works of Asmahan and Umm Kulthum
National Arab Orchestra
(UMS Digital Presentation)

 

This digital offering was filmed at the Ithra Theatre in Saudia Arabia in 2019 by the National Arab Orchestra and features music made famous by two outstanding female singers, Asmahan and Umm Kulthum, who catalyzed a period of creative vibrancy in Egypt during the middle of the 20th century. Lubana Al Quntar, a descendent of Asmahan’s family, and Mai Farouk, a specialist in Tarab who has sung the works of Umm Kulthum in major venues around the world, bring their striking voices and unique artistry to this special program.

We’re thrilled to announce that the National Arab Orchestra will perform in-person next spring in Hill Auditorium as part of UMS’s 2021/22 season! The event will be part of a focus on arts from the Arab World and Its Diaspora and will include both live and digital presentations. Additional details will be announced in May.
