Diaspora Series: Oud Blues, Golden Arm Trio
Location: The Rotunda, 4014 Walnut Street, Philadelphia

The ethnic dispersion of the musical seed has forced tradition to redefine itself again and again. This sowing of cultures has brought to the world a sound filled with tradition. World music, however vague of a genre, is constantly fusing its classical conventions with an ever-growing palette of cultural impressions. While Diaspora Series showcases the most innovative music of this anthropological voyage, it is the social and community gathering that the series denotes. Bringing the community together to share the spirit of dispersed folklore through song and dance.

This event's performers include Oud Blues (Turkish/Syrian Blues) and the Golden Arm Trio (Eclectic World Classical/Jazz).

Admission is free.

The Middle East Center and the Rotunda.
