The Arab and Mediterranean Women’s Orchestra

ALMAR’À is the first orchestra of Arab and Mediterranean women and was created in 2017 between Florence and Rome thanks to the collaboration between Fondazione Fabbrica Europa and the Tunisian socio-cultural Center “Dar Tounsi”, and with the artistic coordination of Ziad Trabelsi.

“ALMAR’À”, a word that in Arabic means “woman”, brings together women and girls from different backgrounds – professional and non-professional musicians, students, rappers, classical musicians, modern singers – in a polyphony that wants to be a symbol of freedom against any violence, against any extremism and closure.

In this sense, ALMAR’À is first of all a journey into music and at the same time an occasion to portrays an existing Italy, but still hidden in individual experiences, lacking in a collective and complex tale.
