PROVINCETOWN, MA -- On Sunday, September 10 at 5PM the Great Music on Sundays @5 concert series will present “Music Without Borders – modern sounds, traditional interpretations” at the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House of Provincetown (236 Commercial Street).
Featuring Basel Zayed (piano, ‘oud & vocals), Takaaki “Taki” Masuko (percussion), Ken Field (saxophone) and John Thomas (piano).
Basel's music evokes hope, justice, freedom, and peace. He takes the listener on a tour through the old city of Jerusalem, where he was born, lived most of his life, and learned the Arabic music tradition from a unique and diverse community and family heritage of hundreds of years. His compositions come from the tradition of Maqam (a Middle Eastern musical scale system), Al-Shia’r Al-Hurr (free verse), Mawazeen (Arabic time signatures), Irtijal (vocal and instrumental improvisations), and Taqaseem (an improvisation form that entails a particular composition mastery).
Percussionist and improvisor Takaaki “Taki” Masuko’s drive to discover what sounds lie in wait inside things, images and feelings has infused his musical voice with distinctive flavor. He is an unconventional and versatile drummer with a passion for twisting time, banging on metal objects to hear their colors, and blending the old and borrowed with the bold and new.
Musical guests Ken Field and John Thomas add their unique musical colors to this concert that is sure to transport the ears and soul of the listener to places far away in location and time yet close to the heart of humanity.
General admission is $25, $20 seniors, $50 limited priority seating, ages 12 & under free. All concerts are handicapped accessible. Tickets are available at the door or tickets may be purchased online ahead of time at https://gmsat5MusicWithoutBorders.brownpapertickets.com
