The Third Alexandrina World Music Festival

Posted on

The BA Arts Center organizes its Third Alexandrina World Music Festival from 6 to 9 May 2011, with the participation of bands and ensembles form Egypt, China, Germany and Malta.

The Festival is influenced by the deeply-rooted diversity of the great city of Alexandria, for it is platform for performing and sharing diverse music rhythms and melodies from Asia, Europe and the Mediterranean, expressing both independent and shared origins, heritages and traditions.

The term "World Music” exerts wide cross-cultural influences. It reminds us of not only the many genres of music: popular music, folk music, local music and isolated forms of ethnic music from diverse geographical regions, but also of the melting pot of sounds in the universe.
