Reviving the cultural treasure of the Muwashshah, Rachid Gholam’s stunning ensemble pays homage to the poetry, melody and form of one of the most iconic forms of classical Arabic music.

Originally travelling from ancient Arabia to Andalusia with the legendary musician Zeryab in the 5th century, the Muwashshah developed in form, both lyrically and musically, across centuries. Upon its return to the North African and the Arabic peninsula, it revitalised the regional music scene, and to this day still remains one of the most influential classical music styles in the Middle East.  

Premiering for the first time in Cambridge, Gholam will be accompanied by his stunning 10-piece Arabic ensemble for this unique performance.

This concert is supported by the Arts Council England.
