Mohamed Abozekry and Karkadé

Sunday, September 16, 2018 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
19 S 10th Street St. Stephens Church
Philadelphia, PA
United States

Virtuoso oud prodigy Mohamed Abozekry convenes Egypt’s popular and classical music traditions, Sufi calls, and secular poetry with a new instrumental project, Karkadé.

With Karkadé, Abozekry evokes the hibiscus tea found everywhere in Cairo, and the eponymous French café at which this project was born. Mixing together styles and traditions, Abozekry creates a beautiful musical language, describing a path to an Arab world at peace with its history and turned towards the future.
