Qantara Berklee World Fusion
The Qantara Berklee Ensemble's performances fuse Arab musical traditions with the contemporary sensibilities of postmodern jazz. The music of Qantara Berklee allows different styles of performance and improvisation to stand out while providing a musical structure that goes beyond stylistic boundaries. Musicians in the ensemble work on challenging musical arrangements and various styles of improvisational skills that are based on harmonic progression, free style, and maqam microtonal expression. Qantara Berklee is a distinctive example of cross-cultural world jazz.
