Colorado College in collaboration with Temple Shalom and Temple Beit Torah is pleased to present SHALOM/SALAAM: A CELEBRATION OF JEWISH AND ARABIC MUSIC at Shove Chapel on Saturday March 2 at 7:00 pm. The concert unites klezmer fusion band Hal Aqua and The Lost Tribe with Middle Eastern ensemble Zuruna for a passionate concert of multicultural diversity. You can expect to hear soulful Arabic groove music, raucous klezmer tunes, and collaborative jamming that meets in the middle. Both bands feel strongly that in these times of divisiveness and fear of the “other,” it’s especially important for musicians to find common ground in songs of peace, love, and coexistence.

HAL AQUA AND THE LOST TRIBE play klezmer fusion -an exuberant musical experience, rooted firmly in traditional Jewish modes and melodies and driven by contemporary rhythms and danceable grooves.

Middle Eastern ensemble ZURUNA fosters the sensuous rhythms and sounds of music from North Africa, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Turkey, Israel and Palestine.

Tickets are $10 for community members and available at the Worner Center Information desk. Colorado College students, faculty and staff are free with a valid ID.
