AlBalad theater and Goethe-Institute presents
Encounter – لقاء
Manfred Leuchter on accordion from Germany and Mohamed Najem on clarinet from Palestine in concert at February 3rd 2015 8:00PM at Al Balad Theater
Najem represents a new generation of highly-trained musicians from the Arab World. Like Leuchter, the now Paris-based clarinetist has eyes and ears for the whole world and now they have a new live project together. They share an insatiable curiosity about each other’s musical universe, and together they present their own pieces, thereby exploring the possibilities between composition and improvisation. Against a background of very differing music genres such as Arabian music, classical tradition and jazz, they expand and stretch the sound boundaries of their instruments Manfred Leuchter has been travelling all over the world for decades with his instrument: the accordion. A musical “global player” who is open for and experienced many very special “encounters” -which often result in exciting new projects- has accepted Mohamed Najem’s offer in 2014 to come to Ramallah to play on Najem’s debut-CD.
