Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
Qantara, which means arch in Arabic, brings to life Simon Shaheen's vision for the fusion of world jazz, Middle Eastern, western classical, and Latin American music in a way that transcends the boundaries of genre and geography.
All compositions are based on forms allowing improvisation in various styles. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own compositions for a possible performance by the ensemble.
