Concert – Andalus Arabic Choir
“Andalus” (Andalucia in Spanish), refers to a large part of Spain and Portugal between 711-1492 AD. During this time Andalusian Spain witnessed a multicultural fusion between Africa, the East and the West as well as among Christians, Muslims and Jews. “Andalusian music” became the courtly music of medieval Spain. Preserved and developed by its descendants around the Mediterranean, it is considered one of the longest continuous traditions of art music in the world.
The Andalus Arabic Choir was established in 2013 and is a non-for-profit multicultural Australian community group formed to promote Arabic heritage, art, music and culture.
