Arabic Music and Stories



Ethel the Barn (60 High Street, Southampton, MA 01073, Southampton MA)

Layaali is a Massachusetts-based group of talented musicians whose love and dedication to Arabic music have earned them wide acclaim from both ethnomusicologists and audiences at sold-out performances throughout the U.S. and internationally. The ensemble is committed to performing the traditional music of the Arab world and to preserving the rich legacy of Arabic culture through soulful vocals, hypnotic instrumental improvisations, electrifying percussion, and faithful renditions and recordings of master works.

Nabeel AlRaee, former Artistic Director from the Freedom Theatre in Palestine will read from his work and discuss art as a form of resistance
