About the event

The Road to Baghdad

Ahmed Mukhtar and Ignacio Lusardi Monteverde present an evening of music that merges their two different cultures, Arabic and Spanish, in a new and exciting way. Andalusia for centuries formed a gateway between Europe and Africa. This resulted in a wonderful amalgamation of Andalusian, Moorish-Arab, Jewish and Romani traditions.

Together, Ahmed and Ignacio, virtuosos on their instruments, will highlight their many musical historical connections, combining both the styles and the disciplines of the two instruments, merging Arab maqams and Middle-Eastern rhythms with the Andalusian harmonies of flamenco, with music ranging in time from Babylon and Ancient Spain up to the present day.
