A celebration of Iraqi music and of the power that music has to unite people across religious boundaries and national borders.

This concert brings together superb Iraqi musicians and their ensembles - the leading Maqam exponent Farida Mohammad Ali (now resident in Holland), composer, violinist and oud player Yair Dalal (an Iraqi Jew from Israel) and the London-based composer and oud soloist Ahmed Mukhtar.

Inspired by the documentary film of the same name being made by Marsha Emerman and Majid Shokor.

‘It was so beautiful, it was almost unbearable. Yair Dalal, with his mysterious magical smile, takes you on a captivating journey where conventional concepts of time,space and freedom do not exist’ Jerusalem Post on Yair Dalal
