  • If you’re in NYC this weekend, check out this awesome event at Governors Island, led by Regine Basha, friend of the Idelsohn Society.

    This Saturday, July 17th, from 12-4pm, Regine is hosting a tutorial on ‘Tuning Baghdad’, related to the field recordings she had done with elderly Baghdadi musicians of the 1940s-a time when Jews, Muslims and Christians shared a thriving music scene. Read more about¬†Tuning Baghdad here.

    Amir El Saffar, an amazing Iraqi-American musician has been invited to play the ‘santour’ at 2:30 in the house. A rare, intimate treat.
