Rami Gabriel's Arabic Xhaman – Tickets – Constellation – CHICAGO, IL – March 12th, 2020
Rami Gabriel's Arabic Xhaman

Rami Gabriel

Ages 18+
Arabic Xhaman traces an aural trajectory between tradition, innovation, and assimilation.

Through the spirit of improvisation, this project brings mystical Middle Eastern, North African, and Delta blues elements together to create a new world experience of the musical traditions that bind us. The project is an inspired contemplation of how the call of tradition receives unforeseen echoes in the diaspora. This evening's performance features original compositions by Lebanese-Egyptian oudist Rami Gabriel in collaboration with native Egyptian drummer, DJ, composer and folk dancer Karim Nagi, and the Saint of bottleneck slide, Chicago bluesman Steve Asma.
