A voice that will break your heart; with Najwa Gibran on a sacred mountain retreat.

13 06 2012

This summer is going to be an incredible one! Among other things, I will be going back to one of my favorite places in America: The Abode of the Message, a paradise oasis on a sacred mountain in the beautiful countryside of upstate New York. Aside from teaching about the sacred music of the three Abrahamic faiths I will be presenting a concert on June 30 at 8 pm, featuring the Yuval Ron Ensemble leading lady, my good friend and sister Najwa Gibran. Najwa is in my humble opinion the best Arabic female voice that exists in the Western World today, and on top of that she is such a classy lady with an amazing integrity and life story. In addition to  the concert she will be sharing her experience and  her insights into the art of Arabic style singing and chanting during an exclusive workshop on the mountain. Participants who will be fortunate to attend her workshop on the June 30 (at 2 pm) will have the opportunity to learn some of Najwa’s songs, vocal ornaments and her approach to vocal improvisation. You may hear and see Najwa in concert in the video below. I hope you will be with us at the Abode on June 30 to hear and feel this in person!

We would be delighted to bring our music and message of peace to London. We have some interest in England from various presenters. Would you also suggest some festivals and centers that may be interested in presenting our Ensemble in London?
