Contemporary Assyrian Folk Concert - San Francisco

Our fascinating concert tour came to the end in San Francisco after performing in the British Museum in London and Pepperdine University in Malibu. Performing during the British Museum's Ashurbanipal exhibit in London was a historic moment to play music amongst our Assyrian ancestor's ancient relics. And now, we are going to share that precious experience with art lovers in San Francisco and Northern California.

The repertoire of this concert includes selected songs of celebrated Assyrian musicians in the last 100 years. Honiball Joseph composed and rearranged this collection through innovative ways, in a new style, and for a new ensemble.

This concert is produced by Gilgamesh Art & Culture Foundation and sponsored by the Assyrian Foundation of America (San Fransisco)
