Barakah in Fez: Jazz Fusion Concert
Monday, Feb. 10 at 7 PM
ALIF Riad, 6 Derb Drissi, Batha, Fez Medina
Barakah is a Vienna-based band with emphasis on fusion music. Through the fascination with free improvisation, rhythmical richness, world music and the exploration of new sounds, the Egyptian drummer Sherif Abdalla and the Austrian saxophonist Anton Prettler founded the band ”Barakah” in summer of 2017.
Soon afterwards, the band expanded to five musicians. The pianist Paulo Correa from Paraguay, the bassist Markus Dutka from Austria and German violinist Constanze Friedel joined them and added their own ideas of music to the band.
Together they explore, experiment and try to exceed their own creativity. With absolute artistic freedom the band Barakah, or ”blessing” in Arabic, strives to live out its meaning and create its own distinct style of music.
