4th intensive course in Andalusí music
For this fourth edition, the chosen programme includes the study of the music of the three cultures. The course makes a theoretical journey through the music of Al-Andalus, a cultural melting pot in which various Mediterranean musical traditions are synthesized to form new genres linked by their common sources: the Iberian tradition, the Nordic tradition, the Byzantine and the Oriental. These genres were interpreted by the Andalusíes and medieval Europeans, with no religious or race distinctions, forming an authentic model of musical and cultural coexistence.
Professor Amin Chaachoo, director of the Tetouan-Asmir Centre for Investigation of Musicology and Conservation of Musical Heritage, together with the director of the Al-Haiek Andalusí Orchestra and director of the Andalusí Orchestra of Málaga, is in charge of leading this intensive workshop that the Fundación Tres Culturas (Three Cultures Foundation) organises in conjunction with the Deputy Ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in charge of Moroccan Expats and Migration Matters.
There are 15 free places available for this course. Those selected will not have to pay anything for enrolling, as the full amount is covered by the Fundación Tres Culturas (Three Cultures Foundation) and the Ministry for Moroccan Expats.
It is vital for those wishing to be included in the candidate selection process and obtain these benefits to have basic music reading knowledge equivalent to the curriculum for the first year of music studies in accordance with the Official Regulations of the Music Conservatories of Spain.
The in-person classes will be given from the 11th to the 14th of March from 5pm to 8pm at the Foundation headquarters. At 8.30pm on the 14th of March, the students will perform a selection of what they have learned during the course.
