‘Moroccan Nightingale’ Performs at Levitt

WestportNow.com Image
Known as “the Moroccan nightingale,” Morocco-born, Israel-based Emil Zrihan tonight performs the musical traditions from Morocco to Israel at the Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts. Accompanied by instrumentalists playing oud (in the lute family), violin, kanoun, and darbouka, Zrihan used his multi-octave countertenor vocals to inject new life into a rich mixture of Moroccan and Judeo-Andalusian folk music, Sephardic and North African songs, improvisational mawals, and tunes from the Mediterranean and the Orient.
