Global Spotlight: Middle East
Grades: 5 - 12

Ronnie Malley and Las Guitarras de España pay tribute to the cultural history of medieval Spain and its tradition of cross-cultural collaboration. This performance follows the trail of Ziryab, a 9th century musical legend from Baghdad, who brought al-oud (Middle Eastern lute) and a wealth of Eastern culture to Andalusia and the Iberian peninsula, where Jews, Christians, and Muslims co-existed for over seven centuries creating a unique and diverse society.
