PROGRAM: Takht al-Nagham is Syrian Music Preservation Initiative's performing ensemble. Based in New York City, the group features a traditional Takht (Arab chamber music group). The Takht is committed to performing the classical and folk Syrian repertoire with traditional acoustic instruments and presents its sets in the
manner that they were originally performed. The Takht includes skilled Syrian and non-Syrian musicians who rely heavily on improvisations, and are deeply immersed in the Syrian musical tradition. Takht al-Nagham is led by Founder and Artistic Director, Samer Ali. This performance features acclaimed Syrian Oud virtuoso and musicologist Muhammed Qadri Dalal.
