SYRIAC AND ARAMAIC CHRISTIAN SINGING
Arrived from war-torn Syria in 2015, he had shaken up the prologue of the Sacred Days with his performance of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Magnificat, among others.
Bass-baritone voice, Kinan Alzouhir has conceived for this edition of the Festival a repertoire of Western and Byzantine Christian religious music. He takes the audience on a journey to Syria with ancient songs in Aramaic (the language spoken by Jesus), Byzantine, Syriac (the ancient Syrian language), Arabic, French and English.
Dressed in a traditional costume he tells the history of his country. His program is lively, varied and emotional.
