El Gusto

After fifty years of separation, an orchestra of Jewish and Muslim musicians torn apart by history and war reunite and embark on their first US tour this summer. Together, once more they share again the passion and the soul of the Algerian Casbah…Chaabi music. The orchestra, consisting of the students of the first music class led by the founder of Chaabi music, El Anka, embody a history of community and tolerance. Their stories and their music speak to the possibility of peace through art. With the current climate of the world and the perceptions and sometimes reality of Jewish and Arab relations, El Gusto offers an important story and insight about a group of people linked by land, heritage, and musical ancestry.
