"DABAKA" Visual Concert on Tuesday 18 December at the Grand Factory
UNHCR (the UN Agency for Refugees) has the pleasure to invite you to an visual concert “DABAKA” by Lebanese and Syrian artists on Tuesday December 18, 2018 at 9:30 pm at the Grand Factory, Karantina, Sea Side.
DABAKA is funded by UNHCR and organized with the support of Red Oak. This project is an initiative by Wael Kodeih.
DABAKA is a musical project that brings together Lebanese and Syrian artists around an audio-visual performance. The outcome is a unique album and an exceptional show.
Revisiting the folkloric “dabkeh”, a dance and musical practice emerging from the Levantine’s common heritage, the artists joined their passion and talent to reclaim its place within a contemporary context.
The project hopes to encourage more dialogue between artists on the cultural scene and to foster a greater understanding of the unique role art can play in bringing people together.
