The Middle Eastern Music Festival highlights flamenco music, from its Andalusian roots to current trends, and explores the connections between flamenco, Arabic, Mediterranean, and Balkan music. The program also reflects the journey Gypsies took from India all the way to the Mediterranean.

Performers include Berklee's Flamenco and Balkan Vocal ensembles—both primarily women's choruses—and the Middle Eastern Fusion Ensemble, featuring student and alumni instrumentalists with surprise appearances by internationally acclaimed flamenco artists.

The program will include traditional and contemporary pieces, original arrangements created by the ensemble, and classics by flamenco masters Paco de Lucia and Pepe De Lucia. A special focus will be given to the music of Enrique Morente, who is known for creatively blending flamenco with other styles.
