The ARAB SONG JAM brings new interpretations of popular and traditional Arab songs are brought to the stage at the WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN. As part of BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2018 we are dedicating this edition to AFRO BEAT.

The concert series bases its format on the Black American jam session culture of the 1940s. The first set of the evening was presented by a regular trio or quartet, while the second set had musicians new to the city introduced by the band leader.

Similar to the jazz jam sessions in all cities around the world being oriented towards The Real Book’s jazz standards, the new concert series ARAB SONG JAM goes Maghreb makes use of the rich treasures of the Arab song repertoire, that were made famous throughout the Arab world by legendary singers such as Oum Kalthoum from Cairo and Fairuz from Beirut, as well as traditional works. 

Here is a little taste of what our jam might sound like, with Afro beat from Nigeria and Chile. We are excited to see what new things emerge from AFRO BEAT and our ARAB SONG JAM. Come along and join in the fun with us. Admission to ARAB SONG JAM is free of charge, and we gladly accept donations at the door!
