FIRST NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
A popular vocalist on the international festival circuit, this young Jordanian revives traditional, folkloric Arabic music with sparkle and style. Trained at the Music Conservatory of Beirut, Nahhas gave an early live performance at the 1997 Jerash Festival and became a regular there. This year alone, she has appeared at Kuwait’s Summer Cultural Festival; Live at DRM in Lebanon; the Palestine National Festival in Ramallah, Babel Ramadan Nights in Beirut; this fall she will perform at the Festival du Monde Arabe – Montreal. Nahhas give special love to songs of Iraqi origin; her latest CD, The Collection, a compilation of her best-loved songs and previously unreleased tracks, came out earlier this year. Read more about the artist on her Facebook page.
For this performance, Nahhas will be accompanied by members of the Michigan Arab Orchestra.
Concertgoers may also enjoy the opening reception for the exhibition Little Syria, NY: An Immigrant Community’s Life & Legacy, prior to the performance.
