The NewLands Festival (previously known as Morgenland Festival Amsterdam) celebrates the artistic wealth of Arabic and Persian culture. Western and Eastern musicians will perform together in new settings, with a new repertory that generally has been written especially for the festival. NewLands also offers a relevant educational program to its audience.
The theme of this edition is Ode to Women, where female Arabic and Persian composers and musicians curate the festival program. The common thread is the role of woman throughout the centuries in all her great diversity and complexity. The BIMHUIS hosts three concerts of NewLands, from September 20 until 22. Every concert will be preceded by a Salon Joussour. See agenda below.
