Classical Arabic music is a world of passion, poetry, nuances and details. Yet the background, the instruments and the musical language remain uncharted territory for most audiences.
Salon Joussour is a passionate and effective ambassador, through organizing concerts, workshops and lectures. The aim is to create a kaleidoscope of music, streaming from Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt, Iran, Turkey and Morocco. Actively connecting renowned Dutch musicians with guests from the Middle East, Salon Joussour builds a bridge that bonds Arabic and European ingenuity.
