The internationally renowned British composer and musician Yusuf (1980) began developing his craft as a child growing up in London, learning to play several traditional Middle Eastern instruments and exploring the tones and modes of the music they conveyed. Across all of his works the listener perceives a unifying underpinning spirituality arising from Yusuf’s belief that traditions throughout the world are beautiful facets of one underlying reality.

In recent years, Yusuf’s music has echoed with sounds from Andalusia to India, and his lyrics reflect the wisdom and beauty of mystical poets. With his love for his Azerbaijani heritage together with his European upbringing, he seeks to draw deep from within these diverse sources to bring about a re-imagining of traditional music for a contemporary audience.

The chamber choir Capella Amsterdam was founded in 1970 by Jan Book and has had chief conductor Daniel Reuse as its artistic director since 1990. The choir specializes in modern as well as early music, with a special focus on work from Dutch composers ranging from Jan Peterson Sweeping to Louis Andreessen and Ton de Leeuw.

A 2012 CD of choir pieces by Leos Janacek and the 2016 recording of Argo Part’s Canon Pokajanen were both awarded an Edison Lassie. In 2018, Capella Amsterdam received the Lassie Muziekprijs from the Varnishing van Schaumburg- en Concertgebouwdirecties for its rendition of Brahms’ EIN detaches Requiem with the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century.

The Sufi Andalusia represents the music’s mystical side with vocal improvisations that are passed on from teacher to disciple in alias (sacred tombs). Apart from these repertoires, the AAO also takes to the stage with other Andalusian -oriented genres, such as the Calhoun and flamenco, and specializes in Eastern Shari music.

In collaboration with the AmsterdamAndalusianOrchestra, the Ice dances the triptych Kiel | Rough. Three choreographers depict a movement of music from Landaus, the Moorish empire in Spain: the Arab (classical), Sufi Andalusia (mystical spiritual) and the chapati Andalusia (contemporary folk music).

The last part was created especially for the performance by guest composer Abderrahim Somali. The combination of contemporary dance and ancient music gives a unique view of the Moorish soul, rough in Arabic.
