The Syrian National Ensemble for Arab Music, led by Maestro Adnan Fathallah, dedicated its musical evening during the Syrian Culture Days to the ancient and contemporary Syrian heritage.
The evening program, which was hosted by the Opera Theater at Dar Al-Assad for Culture and Arts, carried muwashshahs, templates for Arab musical composition, and popular popular songs popular with the Syrian public.
The distribution and preparation of the presented songs came with a young Syrian imprint, as academic musicians Kamal Skiker, Muhammad Othman, Issam Rafea, Fathallah, Mahdi al-Mahdi and Gabi Massou worked on distributing them.
The large area of the program was occupied by the great Syrian composers, with works by the late Adnan Elosh, Omar Al-Batsh, Adnan Abu Al-Shamat and Abdel-Fattah Sukkar, as well as links to traditional songs.
The band, in which the young singer Rayan Jarrera and the band's choir participated, performed pieces and songs of Sama'i Afaq and Muwashah in Al-Rawd, Anna and Leilna Ya Sham Helou, Longa Hijaz, and a link from the songs of the late musician Abdel Fattah Sukkar, songs from the heritage of the Syrian Jazeera and songs from my country from the heritage.
And for the musician, Mohamed Abdel-Wahab, the band presented the voice of Rayan Khayef, I say to me in my heart, to conclude the evening with the work of Ornina by Gabi Masou from the Syriac heritage.
In a statement to SANA, Maestro Fathallah reviewed what the Syrian academic musicians had done in preserving their great heritage and fighting all manifestations that tried to infiltrate our culture during the war on our homeland.
He pointed out that in the past ten years, musicians took to the theaters despite the dangers and the shells of hatred, and presented music because of their belief in its great impact on peace and war, and its being a universal human need for people of all walks of life, and its great role culturally, educationally and psychologically.
