As a part of Passim’s new concert series Small World - Big Ears, which brings together musicians who play in a wide variety of musical traditions from around the globe, Orkestra Marhaba and Atlas Soul are playing Club Passim in Cambridge, MA on Monday, October 23rd at 7:00 P.M. Orkestra Marhaba started in 2011 when a quartet of musicians talked about their shared curiosity around makam - a system of defining musical scales in Turkish classical music. As four minds are better than one, a working group of musicians in the Boston area came together every week with their different instruments to discover and strengthen their knowledge of makam and the world of Ottoman art music. Atlas Soul is a multiple award-winning band performing original music that celebrates polyrhythm & melodies rooted in the Afro-Mediterranean traditions and fuse them with deep funk, jazz, and intelligent hip hop. Atlas Soul sings in French, Italian, Arabic, Hebrew and English, making their performances truly cross-cultural music experiences. The lyrics speak of love, ecology, oppression, happiness, immigration, poverty, spicy food! Tickets are on-sale now at www.clubpassim.org.
