A Chicago native, Palestinian Ronnie Malley is a multi-instrumentalist whose principle instrument is the Oud. A close friend of ICMEP, he has collaborated with musicians and artists from Senegal, Sudan, North Africa, India, Kashmir, Macedonia, Iran, Greece, and Turkey; he composes, records, and performs for film projects and theatrical productions. He teaches at the Old Town School of Folk Music and The Band's Visit, and is a member of the band Lamajamal. We are delighted to say he also plans to provide some music during our Zoom Gala in celebration of ICMEP's 15th anniversary!
We are recording a special performance by Ronnie, followed by some conversation with Dr. Spath, which will be posted for your viewing pleasure throughout the week of October 11-17. Keep your eyes on our YouTube channel, because you won't want to miss it!
