“Nabra” means the sound of one’s own voice. The sound of the Nabra oud duo is an intoxicating blend of Sudanese and Middle Eastern influences with plenty of Taqsim (improvisations) thrown in.
Nabra features the combined ouds of Ali Elmubarak (Sudan) and Knud Stüwe (Germany) as well as Ali’s expressive vocals sung in Arabic.
In the Long Interval..
Food will be brought to you by the Moveable Feast team – a collective of chefs from refugee backgrounds and British volunteers, who create uniquely delicious feasts. Over the meal there will an opportunity to mingle and meet the musicians, cooks and helpers.
After the meal there will be more music with Dijwar Khalil on the Turkish Saz, accompanied with drumming. Optional dancing for the brave, chance for local musicians to join in if you wish!
This exciting concert-and-meal event is one of a series of recitals in Gloucestershire and Somerset with refugee professional musicians, presented in collaboration with Bristol City of Sanctuary, Lorraine Ayensu Refugee Arts and Bristol Hospitality Network.”
