Terrace Concerts 2024 - Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra

Everything is a meeting, says the Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra (AAO). And every encounter makes you richer. Tonight the AAO will play a preview of the music from the dance performance Mystic, with which they will tour the theaters in spring 2025. In Mystic, the AAO explores music from a vast area, from Western China to the Iberian Peninsula, in a transporting search for cross-pollination and spiritual connection.

Cultural cross-pollination and spiritual connection

The music of the Middle East is characterised by a special use of scale systems. These maqams not only consist of specific notes but form a complex of coherent melodies, ornaments and spiritual meanings. Similar music traditions exist in other parts of the world, from the Balkans and the Caucasus to the Maghreb and even among the Western Chinese Uyghurs. In this concert, the AAO visits everywhere.
