Marcel Khalife...in Concert
Sunday, November 14th 2004 7 PM
Chicago, Illinois


The Lebanese musician, Marcel Khalife, is considered one of the greatest composers and masters of the oud, the fretless Arabic lute. Beyond the disciplined instrumental work, Kalife is most loved for his haunting and inspiring settings of Arab poetry, including that of Khalil Gibran and Mahmoud Darwish.
Khalife is recognized for reshaping traditional Arab music by
broadening the discipline of the oud, advancing its tradition as a solo instrument and creating works with greater breadth and richness of sound for multiple ouds. He is also considered one of the truly unique Arab nationalist musicians in the history of Arab music, as his lyrics strive and yearn for independence, self-determination, peace, and justice for the Palestinians, the Arabs, and oppressed people everywhere.



Location: 
The Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater for Music and Dance 205 E. Randolph Drive, in Chicago's Millennium Park.   Chicago Illinois
