The ensemble Sama Damaszener is made up of trained singers and musicians from Damascus. The artistic director of the group is the wellknown reciter Abdul Rahman Al Kurdi.
The musicians perform an impressive combination of Arabic lyrics and oriental sounds and have a rich repertoire of songs from Syria and other Arabian countries. The spiritual texts originate from the period as the Islamic Empire extended to Spain, the Moorish period from the 8th to the 15th century. Even up to today, they have lost none of their topicality.
„Sama“, the name of the ensemble, can be translated as „listen“. With their enchanting voices, the reciters succeed in singing their way into the hearts of their listeners and touching their souls. They are accompanied by traditional oriental instruments such as the Arabian short-necked lute, the Oud, the flute or the Qanun (an oriental box zither).
The aim of the artists is to preserve old cultural works from the Orient and make them known in Europe. With their performances, they seek to send a message of peace to all peoples, whatever their nationality or religion , to bring them closer together through their music, to practice tolerance towards each other and to feel as one.
