Hamza El Din's Waterwheel

Hamza El Din's Waterwheel

Saturday, 15 June 2024, 3.00pm

The concert at 3pm focuses on Escalay (The Waterwheel) by Hamza El Din, a player on the oud (Arabian lute) who moved to California in the early sixties and had a powerful effect on U.S. musicians from the Grateful Dead to Steve Reich. This piece turns at first with the steady purposefulness of the irrigation machine after which it is named, before gathering energy and excitement. Appropriately, three outstanding exponents of Irish traditional music - Zoë Conway and Inni-k—will provide the power with Rihab Azar on Oud.
