After Verona, ALMAR’À, the orchestra of Arab and Mediterranean women, will be in concert at Teatro Socjale di Piangipane (Ravenna) as part of Territori Comuni (Common Territories), a program of initiatives promoted by the Department of Immigration of the Municipality of Ravenna centered on the issues of coexistence, sustainability and equity.
The concert of the ALMAR’À is part of the section “Le forme dell’ascoltare i territori” (The forms of listening to the territories).
ALMAR’À is an orchestra made up of thirteen women from eight different geographical origins who live in Italy and look to the future with the desire to rediscover their own traditions.
Musicians of all ages, professional and non-professional, traditional and modern singers, the ALMAR’À are Dania Alkabir Alhasani (Syria) on violin, Dima Dawood (Syria) on kanoun, Derya Davulcu (Turkey) on double bass, Sana Ben Hamza (Tunisia) on darbouka, Eszter Nagypal (Hungary) on cello, Valentina Bellanova (Italy) on nay flute, Sade Mangiaracina (Italy/Tunisia) on piano, Vera Petra (Italy) on percussion, Silvia La Rocca (Eritrea) on transverse flute; Kavinya Monthe Ndumbu (Kenya), Yasemin Sannino (Turkey), Hana Hachana (Tunisia) and Nadia Emam (Italy / Egypt), vocals.
ALMAR’À was formed in 2017 between Florence and Rome thanks to the collaboration between the Fondazione Fabbrica Europa and the Tunisian socio-cultural center “Dar Tounsi”, and with the artistic coordination of Ziad Trabelsi from the dell’Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio.
The project had the support of the Italian Ministry for Culture through the MigrArti call and the support of Fondazione Pianoterra and Fondazione Cultura e Arte.
