Al Maqamat Festival: Night 1

Tunes & Rhythms of Al-Andalus from Morocco and Syria

Al Maqamat is a unique two-day festival of music curated by renowned singer Rachid Gholam, celebrating the great variety of ‘maqamat’: the musical modes of the Arab world. Over a weekend in June, Kings Place will come alive with the rich and diverse Andalusian sounds inherited by Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco and Syria and preserved and developed by its pioneers over the centuries.


Five talented exponents from the region will present Malouf, Al-Tabu, Gharnati, Sama’a, Qudud and Muwashahat, carrying audiences on a varied musical journey through the great centres of Andalusian music via song.

On the first night, we head to Morocco, then Syria and across the entire Arab world, to showcase the arts of the Muwashah songs which have been passed down through the generations with memorisation, intonation and great fondness.

Alongside the legendary Rachid Gholam, we will hear from the incredibly talented Syrian artist Khaled Al-Hafez and the creative Moroccan artist Bayan Balaiachi.
