7 Degrees - music of Al-Andalus
Come and experience this remarkable excursion into the music of Al-Andalus - Islamic Spain from the 8th through 15th centuries. This period was noted for an incredible diversity of cultures, religions, beliefs and customs, all of whom co-existed peacefully and thrived together for centuries. The members of 7 degrees Ensemble (formerly called Trîada)Kurt Gramckow (oud), Claire MacKenzie (voice, daff), Ali Paris (qnn, voice), and Taryn Rosenquist (violin)see this as a hopeful model to be emulated and nurtured in these divisive times. They believe, as does Bodhi Tree Concerts North, that music is a powerful connector of peoples, and their mission is to introduce audiences to classical and traditional repertoire which reveals a common musical ancestry and kinship shared around the globe.
100% of profits from this concert will go to benefit Zawaya, a San Mateo based non-profit whose mission is to preserve, produce, and promote Arabic Arts in San Mateo County and the larger San Francisco Bay Area. Their vision is to achieve intercultural solidarity, respect, and understanding through the universal languages of music and the arts.
