Issam Rafea, master of Syrian oud and former principal conductor of Syrian National Orchestra for Arabic Music, moves gracefully between traditional maqam repertoire and far-out improvisational adventure. He’ll be performing with Hindustani vocalist Matt Rahaim and other special guests. This concert is a unique chance to experience a performance from a major international touring artist.
