Faces of Love Concert featuring AL ANDALUS - Ladue News: Music & Concerts

Music & Concerts

St. Louis, MO

There was a period when Jews and Arabs got along --  that's exactly what they did from 800-1400 B.C.E., in the historical Al-Andalus period. In Spain and North Africa, Jews, Christians and Muslims collaborated on arts and sciences to create one of the world's most advanced societies. Al-Andalus, an eclectic group of musicians from all over the world recreate the spirit of the historical Al-Andalus in concerts celebrating  Arab-Jewish music traditions with an innovative mix of jazz, contemporary and classical rhythms.


Tarik Banzi, Artistic Director plays the oud, ney and darbuka. He has collaborated with flamenco and jazz masters such as Paco de Lucia, Manolo Sanlucar, Enrique Morente and Jorge Pardo. His versatility can be heard in works by classical, jazz, folk, New Age, rock and world music artists across the globe. Julia Banzi lived in Spain for over a decade where she specialized in flamenco and established herself as one of the very few female flamenco guitarists worldwide.
