GUEST: Ismaeel Dawas Band Concert
Come experience the Ismaeel Dawas band perform several genres of music from Bahrain and the Arabian Gulf, including songs that recall the history of pearl diving and highlight the hardships endured by diving crews during their months at sea. The band consists of a network of families who practice musical traditions, some ritualistic in nature and others associated with work, ceremonies, events, and entertainment that speak to Afro-diasporic ways of knowing and being.
This event is sponsored by the Mellon New Directions Grant, Office of the Provost and Dean of the College, Weitz Center for Creativity, Music Department, Africana Studies, Middle Eastern Languages, Off Campus Studies, Africa-Arabia OCS Program, and Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA)
