VIRTUAL EVENT (Streaming from The Autorino Center for the Arts and Humanities)
Ameen Mokdad and Cuatro Puntos Ensemble
Iraqi composer and multi-instrumentalist Ameen Mokdad was trapped in hiding by ISIS for two years in his hometown of Mosul. During that time he wrote an extraordinary repertoire of powerful and emotional music. He arranged it later for string quartet, while he himself plays violin, various middle eastern percussion instruments, recites poetry, and sings. The 19 songs on this album form a soundscape that transverses a range of emotions: fear, defeat, hope, and rebirth.
