Brooklyn Maqam will cap their first year of programming with a full night of music featuring three of the top Arabic musical groups from in and around NYC. This will be a rare chance to hear a variety of different traditions in Arabic music performed by master musicians and singers. A new community organization devoted to the middle-eastern music scene in New York, Brooklyn Maqam has been forging connections between musicians and enthusiastic audiences through their twice-monthly Brooklyn Maqam Hang events in Brooklyn.
Brooklyn Maqam is a new organization focused on bringing together the Arabic music community, giving artists an opportunity to present new work and new collaborations, as well as developing audiences and mentoring emerging musicians. Our Brooklyn Maqam Hang music series has presented new performers on a biweekly basis throughout our first year, garnering enthusiastic support from audiences.
