For the closing night of Darna Fest, Darna invites conductor Tom Cohen and Neta Elkayam for an extraordinary night! The Jewish-Moroccan singer Neta combines Andalusian, Berber and Mediterranean musical influences in her voice. The support act Al'Fanamenco will present a new project in which Moroccan Chaabi music meets flamenco.
The project Hak a Mama aims to create a bridge between times and cultures. Its starting point is the music that our grandmothers, Jewish and Muslim, heard when they were young in Morocco - the common cultural ground from which and on which they grew.
In a kind of movement that goes back to this common point of departure and at the same time forward to the present here and now - these wonderful works receive a moving and compassionate interpretation by Neta Elkayam wrapped in the unique arrangements of maestro Tom Cohen for the Brussels Philharmonic Soloists and a Moroccan orchestra. As an unconditional lover of Morocco, Tom knows how to transmit these musical treasures in a unique way, even to those who did not grow up in this tradition and do not know its background.
This inter-generational, inter-continental and inter-temporal meeting is actually an open and inviting artistic dialogue of languages and sounds that illustrates the connecting and magical power of the happiest-sad-music you will ever hear.
