Takht Al-Nagham Ensemble, as the performing arm of the Syrian Music Preservation Initiative, keeps alive traditional music and repertoire of the historic city of Aleppo, Syria – cultural heart of the Arabic musical world. The group is led by violinist and oud player Sameer Ali, who formed the group along with other top Syrian artists, now scattered in exile. A native of Syria now living and working as a doctor in New York, Ali is a member of the National Arab Orchestra.

Takht Al-Nagham sextet will feature Muhammad Qadri Dalal, a virtuoso oud player, a true master Of improvisation in Arab music. Dalal visited Miami as a member of the Al Kindi Ensemble, with the landmark Whirling Dervishes of Damascus tours in 2001 and 2004, and now lives in Alexandria, Egypt.

The evening will feature Syrian food, in partnership with Refugee Assistance Alliance, a South Florida non-profit organization working with underserved refugee families. The majority of client families have fled the Syrian Civil War and were resettled here within the past six years. RAA’s programs focus on teaching English to refugee adults, helping kids with their school work, doing GED and job certificate tutoring, Women’s Empowerment through TASTE dinners, assistance with practical needs, and cultural programming.
