Sacred and ecstatic music from Morocco and Pakistan - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Fifth Ave. @ 82nd St. - 212-535-7710
Description: Discover the mysterious power of call-and-response Gnaoua trance music and the rich history of Sufi devotional music as Hassan Hakmoun, one of Morocco's leading musicians, and Pakistan's renowned Qawwali troupe, Najmuddin Saifuddin & Brothers, share the stage in this celebratory evening to inaugurate the Museum's new galleries. The two groups will come together for a rare joint finale. It's an evening of impassioned voices, driving choral refrains and syncopated rhythms you won't want to miss.
