Konstantinos Glynos and Ignacio Lusardi Monteverde alongside Lourdes Fernandez and Demi Garcia Sabat combine cultures, as East meets West in harmonious collusion. Their combination of Arabiaan qanun and Spanish guitar is not surprising as you might think.

About the event
Arabs brought their music to Spain, where it contributed to what we know today as Flamenco. They present new musical ideas based on Middle Eastern and Flamenco music, with pieces that are musical visions that include Maqams, Andalusian harmonies and rhythms of the Middle East - from Babylon and Ancient Spain, to the present.
Flamenco and Arabic music are time-honoured ancient musical practises that encompass a wide range of artistic styles and emotions. Vocal expressions of deep joy or heartache are conveyed through singing, which often include poetic lyrics.
