Global Fridays: Abdulrahman Al Akhfash (Yemeni) says
This performance embodies the Yemeni tradition that most often consists of a solo singer with oud accompaniment, highlighting rhythms in subtly expressive ways. Renowned across Yemen as a musician and vocalist, Abdulrahman Al Akhfash has contributed significantly over the past 20 years to the natural development and enrichment of the Sanani repertoire. His delivery is expressive, occasionally euphoric, but ultimately poetic.

***The public is welcome to attend a FREE talk by Yemeni jewelry expert and author Marjorie Ransom at 6:30 p.m.***
