Nakba Commemoration – The Evolving Musical Narrative

Foty Fusion also provides musical lectures and workshops which seek to present ethnomusicological topics through musical performance. We conduct lectures and workshops which seek to provide a greater and more nuanced understanding of the richness of Arab culture at various academic institutions including universities, high schools, foundations and student organization events among others. Musical lectures may outline the history of the Arab World and contextualize the political climate in which the music was composed as well as the influence of non-western elements upon western music. All lectures and workshops are accompanied by a musical performance to accentuate the academic elements. Key musical lectures have been performed at the University of Maryland – Eastern Shore, the Jerusalem Fund Palestine Center, and Wakeforest University among other venues.
