Mediterranean Day event: Round-table discussion and concert by Basma-Orwa- Atanasovski
Invitation to mark the Mediterranean Day, on 28 November 2022, at Cankarjev dom.
At 18:30 a round-table discussion will be held on the importance of intercultural dialogue in the Mediterranean and the binding power of art, moderated by journalist Kristina Božič.
Ambassador Mateja Prevolšek, Head of Department for Africa and the Middle East at Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
Jerneja PENCA, PhD, Associate Professor and Head of Academic Affairs at the Euro-Mediterranean University (EMUNI),
Ervin Hladnik Milharčič, journalist,
Orwa Saleh, Syrian musician.
The multicultural trio of virtuoso musicians Basma-Orwa-Atanasovski will begin their concert at 20:00.
The exceptional Syrian musicians based in Vienna, Basma Jabr and Orwa Saleh transform the charismatic ancient Arabic tunes into a perfect harmony and a sensual musical journey, on which they will be joined by the Slovenian musician Vasko Atanasovski on saxophone/flute.
The musical mysticism will take you beyond the boundaries of what is possible, where only music can take you, on a journey to the old cities where the West meets the East.
