Arab Christmas

Tuesday 07 January 2020

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Experience the atmosphere of Christmas in the Arab world as St Martin-in-the-Fields resounds with Syriac, Coptic and Byzantine chants, harking back to the time of Queen Zanubia’s Palmyra in the second century CE. The sound world of these chants is rich with quarter tones and virtuosic ornamentation.

Palestinian singer and broadcaster, Reem Kelani, will lead the evening as compere.

Arab Christmas is produced by Arts Canteen and supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
