Aga Khan Museum says
Often used to solely describe Western traditions, the term "classical music" is re-examined within the context of cultural diversity in this special series of performances. Our Classical Music Series presents the sights and sounds of North Indian, Indonesian, Italian, and Syrian musical traditions. Redefine your understanding of classical music through performances that explore melodic scales, historical recordings, and new interpretations of Western repertoire.

Arias and Maqams is a reflection of a distinctive artistic vision shaped by the charm of oriental music of ancient cultures and traditions. Open your ears as Lubana al quntar, Syria’s first opera singer, and "oud" virtuoso/composer Issam Rafea bridge Western classical and Arabic Maqam traditions in this showcase performance, rooted in rich poetic lyrics and original compositions.
