Next Wednesday ALIF presents Paula Jeanine Bennett and the Sefrou Village Ensemble performing songs from the folk-opera “A Village of One/Village dial Waheda”
NYC-based vocalist-composer-percussionist-visual artist Paula Jeanine Bennett will present songs from her folk opera “A Village Of One/Village Dial Waheda” in English and Darija in a night of new music.
With a seven-voice choir, a halka storyteller, Brahim Daldali, local musicians Ismail Maarouf (guitar, drums, voice) and Youness El Issmaeli (oud), the evening promises to be an unforgettable one.
“A Village Of One/Village Dial Waheda” is a musing on the loneliness of modern life as seen through the lens of a village.
With a focus on women’s issues, social structure and self-definition, the songs of “Village Dial Waheda” lend themselves to cultural dialogue.
This concert is free and open to the public.
