Foreign Rhythms - Baladi Gharib

Babylon Orchestra is an orchestra project uniting exiled Arabic musicians and European musicians in Berlin to promote contemporary and traditional oriental culture. We see ourselves as a platform for new Arabic creation, whilst transforming existing stereotypes of refugees and Arab culture in Europe. As music is an important representation of cultural development, we commission new works by contemporary Arabic composers to be performed in concerts across Germany.
