The Layali Zaman Academy Orchestra presents traditional and contemporary music of North Africa and the Middle East. With Maestro Adel Eskander, you will be taken on a musical journey that features performances by vocal and instrumental stars from these regions. Every concert is based on the music, of legendary composers and singers, that spans decades; from their identified Golden Age Of Music (1950s – 1970s) to the present.
This 30-piece orchestra combines traditional Arab world instruments, Qanun, Oud, Nay and hand drums, with Western European instruments to create an exciting evening of music and song. Improvisations on the traditional instruments will transport you in time and space. As for the singing, even if you don’t understand the language, you will experience an emotional connection to each song.
Maestro Adel Eskander, Master Violinist and orchestra conductor and founder, is a graduate of the Egyptian based Conservatory of Arabic Music. He has performed with many famous orchestras and singers including the Cairo Opera House Symphony Orchestra and El Masya with Conductor and Maestro, Ahmed Fouad Hassan. With this group he had the distinct honor of playing for the legendary vocalist Abd’ Halim Hafez. His wide range of musical interests led him to tour with the renowned rock band Led Zeppelin.
Since the inception of this orchestra in 2014, Maestro Eskander, has included both Arab and non-Arab musicians. He has fostered and supported musicians who love the music, yet not of the culture. His devotion to music and its capacity to bring cultures together has been at the heart of every performance.
