Event Description

Early Music of the Maghreb


The region of Northern Africa to the left of Egypt, once known as the Barbary Coast and later, the Maghreb, nurtured a volatile mix of Phoenician, Carthaginian, and later Berber, Jewish, and Arabic cultures. Its most legendary city a sacrifice to Rome’s founding, more recent turmoil came from European colonialization.


An ethnic cauldron and brutal colonialism forged a vibrant and kaleidoscopic musical tradition that lives on to this day. Please join us for our second collaboration with Afro Roots Tuesdays, as we welcome an ensemble of  gifted musicians of Algerian, Tunisian, and Morrocan origin for an early music concert surely unlike any Other.
