Home Within
6/30/2016

A beautiful audio-visual performance, Home Within is the newest project of Syrian composer and clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and Syrian Armenian visual artist Kevork Mourad. In this work, art and music develop in counterpoint to each other, creating an impressionistic reflection on the Syrian revolution and its aftermath. Rather than following a narrative, the artists document specific moments in Syria’s recent history and reach into their emotional content in a semi-abstract way.

Free general admission tickets will be distributed in the Family Theater lobby starting at approximately 5:30 p.m., up to two tickets per person.

Together, they are brilliant virtuosi endowed with charismatic musical presence, personality, and inventiveness.

Presented by the 2016 Smithsonian Folklife Festival and the Aga Khan Music Initiative.
