Ziryab: Songbird of Andalusia

October 2, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


ICMEP is thrilled to welcome Ronnie Malley for an evening of incredible music and storytelling!

Take an enchanting musical journey from 9th-century Islamic Spain to present-day America. Arabic music & poetry tell the story of Ziryab, a man formerly enslaved in Baghdad, whose musical talent with the oud (lute)  brought him fame throughout the Middle East, North Africa, and al-Andalus - where Christians, Jews, and Muslims co-existed for centuries, creating a diverse society.

Ronnie weaves this story with his own story as a Muslim Palestinian-American growing up in Chicago.

Join us Saturday, October 2, at 6:30pm for this incredible evening!

This even is free and open to the public. We are grateful for the support provided in a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts, Indiana Arts Commission, and Fort Wayne Arts United.
