Salaam Train to Basra New Album Release
New York, New York, USA
Led by multi-instrumentalist and composer Dena El Saffar, Salaam is a Middle Eastern ensemble based in the Midwest. The band has delighted audiences for years with its expansive repertoire of Middle Eastern and North African music, informing the uninitiated, and evoking nostalgia in listeners who are familiar with the art form.
The sound, while rooted in maqam (the modal system used throughout the Middle East), is infused with creative forays into other music genres. Join Alwan for the Arts and rejoice and enjoy the musical talents and experience that is Salaam!
