An enchanting evening of music with acclaimed Egyptian composer Omar Khairat, one of the most prominent Arab composers of his era; and theonly composer who incorporated the quarter tone with classical music.
With a career spanning over four decades, Khairat is known for his unique style which blends Arabic and Western music. A familiar face in concerts in the Arab world and beyond, his compositions include ballets, symphonies; and also composed soundtracks of numerous popular television serials and films. His music is influenced by traditional Arabic music, European classical works, Egyptian and African folklore, and Western genres such as jazz, pop, and blues.
