This concert aims to highlight this connection and build on it with original compositions and renditions of melodies from Andalucia and the Middle East that shows the common thread that runs through these traditions.
Saturday 4 June 8pm - Rich Mix 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, E1 6LA
Oud player Attab Haddad has had an interest in flamenco more or less since he started playing the oud. Flamenco's forms, rhythms and melodies have influenced a large part of his work and he is still fascinated by the connections between flamenco and Middle Eastern music.
