Free Concert at ALIF Riad Fez - Village Dial Waheda

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.

Though the work has been performed in New York and in Java, Paula has adapted her material to include many elements of her love of Moroccan culture, mixed with her own unique aesthetic.

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.

Wednesday, March 4th at 7 PM
ALIF Riad, 6 Derb Drissi, Batha
