Arabic music concert at Sonoma library
The Mid-East Tapestry Ensemble is playing a free concert at the Sonoma Valley Library on Saturday.
The Mid-East Tapestry Ensemble plays a diverse array of classical, urban and folk music from the Arabic-speaking countries as well as Turkish, Greek, Armenian and Persian traditions.
The ensemble is comprised of the kanoun, a 78-stringed Middle Eastern zither; the oud, an 11-stringed lute; acoustic bass; and Arabic tabla.
Vince Delgado, the founder of Mid-East Tapestry, says, “There is much beautiful music to be heard from these countries that have been developing and evolving in their culture for a few thousand years.”
The concert is at 2 p.m. on Sept. 15. The library is located at 755 W. Napa St.
