explores the links between music from the Palestinian Arab tradition and the medieval Italian repertoire: the differences and similarities that unite and distinguish these two poetic and musical traditions. Conceived and created in collaboration with two young musicians, recent graduates of the Edward Said National Conservatory of Palestine, the goal of Shurùq is an ambitious one: the continuation of a centuries-old tradition of cultural exchange. Imagined as an ongoing laboratory dedicated to improvisation and historically informed performance practice (along with a comparative study of styles and forms), its goal is to explore the many possibilities of dialogue between languages that, although different in appearance, still share a common origin.
