Dawn

How does it sound?

You hear the water dripping softly from the plants.
A cricket sounds in the distance.
The hour is blue.
The time between day and night when everyone is still sleeping but is almost awake.
The moon has just left, the sun has not yet risen.

What happens in the blue hour?
Who is secretly awake already?
Who waits for the sun to come?
Who would rather hide in the darkness?

Dauw is a cozy family concert where the magic of the blue hour and Andalusian and Arabic music transport you into a dream world. The Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra tells the story that you can hear from the music. The age-old instruments, the oud, the ney and the rabab, present a rich repertoire from Granada to Baghdad. Theatrical elements, humor & playfulness make this visual listening experience accessible to everyone from 6 to 106 years old. In Oorkaan's theatrical concerts, musicians play the music by heart and by heart. Their style of play is physical, a language that every child can identify with. And “Language no Problem,” because the only language that can be heard is the music.

Recommended age: 4 to 104

THE AMSTERDAM ANDALUSIAN ORCHESTRA

Let yourself be carried away by the tarab, the classic repertoire from Al Andalus, the chaabi andalusi, classical repertoire with musical crossovers from folk music and the sufi andalusi, with its mystical atmosphere. In addition to these three classical Andalusian main genres, the Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra (AAO) also focuses on other Eastern music such as sharqi, and other styles such as flamenco, mahoun and a more contemporary style. The AAO was founded in 2011 with the aim of connecting Andalusian heritage in the field of art and culture with the present. The AAO not only brings music back to Europe, but combines this with theater to tell the story of Al-Andalus and its significance for our society.

"It was striking how the musicians also matched each other in comic and sometimes even tragicomic acting talent. Meanwhile, the most beautiful Andalusian, Abbasid, Turkish, Armenian and Sephardic (Arab Andalusian Jewish) music sounds. "
