Kouni, reflects Huda’s multi-faceted musical, life experiences and identity. Its songs aim at revisiting the different musical genres that have helped shape the personality and music repertoire of Huda Asfour, ranging from folk songs of Iraq and Tunisia, to original compositions that delve into taboo identities, and explores the theme of love, outside of the borders imposed on its expression and manifestation. In this album, Huda blends vocals with classical and jazz inspired string and brass arrangements, and rhythms from a broad range of styles, to produce a unique amalgamation of sounds.
The show will feature 13 local DC artists: Asha Santee (Drums), Khaled Maoulaoui (Percussions), Derek Bond (Electric Guitar), Thaddeus Wilson (Trumpet and Brass arrangements), Reginald Cyntje (Trombone), Elijah Easton (Tenor Saxophone) and Cherry “Blossoms Strings”, String Quartet performing strings arrangements by Ethan Balis
With special guests: John Steel (Contrabass), Juju House (Drums), Sitali Siyolwe (Electric Guitar), Kamyar Arsani (Irani Daf). This performance is made possible in part by our partnership with Multiflora Productions.
