Founded a decade ago by Detroit-born conductor Michael Ibrahim, who was born into a Syrian immigrant family and began playing the oud at age 10, the National Arab Orchestra is dedicated to preserving and performing classical and contemporary traditions of Arab music, providing opportunities to bridge social and cultural barriers through music.

This digital offering celebrating the contributions of Arab women to the arts was filmed at the Ithra Theatre in Saudia Arabia last year by the National Arab Orchestra. It features music made famous by two outstanding female singers, Asmahan and Umm Kulthum, who catalyzed a period of creative vibrancy in Egypt during the middle of the 20th century. Lubana Al Quntar, a descendent of Asmahan’s family, and Mai Farouk, a specialist in Tarab who has sung the works of Umm Kulthum in major venues around the world, bring their striking voices and unique artistry to this special program.
