Celebration of Palestinian Arts Held November 14

SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University celebrates the Palestinian arts with an afternoon of music and dance starting 2 p.m. Saturday, November 14, in the Wicomico Room of the Guerrieri University Center.

Palestinian musician Fuad Foty sings and performs on the ’oud, a traditional Middle Eastern stringed instrument, in a fusion of Middle Eastern and Western music. Self-composed music and lyrics, Foty’s songs represent social and political themes of the modern world. Foty is one of the most well known ’oud musicians in Washington, D.C., and has performed at venues including the Kennedy Center, Vocal Arts Society and Georgetown University.

Accompanying Foty’s musical performance is a circular dabke dance performance. The celebration is rounded out with tastes and sights of Palestinian life.
