With his top-flight ensemble, Iraq’s Attab Haddad Quintet blends Andalusian, Mediterranean and Arabic sounds with contemporary jazz approaches to create story-like compositions with the breadth of the Sahara and the intricacy of the Alhambra Palace.

This is one of a series of concerts produced by Arts Canteen that aims to highlight this connection and build on it with original compositions and renditions of melodies from Andalucia and the Arab World that shows the common thread that runs through these traditions.

Also featuring special guest Sabina Rakcheyeva, an Azerbaijani violinist, soloist, concertmaster and a member of the European Cultural Parliament.
