Hasan Tamim and the Canadian Arabic Orchestra present...

Sounds of Iraq

Happening in the Lyric Theatre

“Sounds of Iraq” is a production by the Canadian Arabic Orchestra (CAO) in collaboration with Hassan Tamim – Poet and Singer. This music will take you from the forests and snow of Canada to past times and faraway places, to the land between the rivers of Tigris and Euphrates, where poets thrived and beautiful music evolved.

CAO is a not-for-profit organization committed to reviving fine Arabic music and to promoting multicultural understanding in Canada. Through its concerts, the Orchestra maintains the cultural heritage in the hearts and minds of the Arab community and presents it to future generations. CAO also seeks to engage with non-Arab communities in the Canadian cultural mosaic.

The Festival of Arabic Music and Arts (FAMA) is an annual celebration of Arabic culture in the Greater Toronto Area and the first of its kind in Ontario. FAMA features a series of shows hosting Arab and non-Arab artists, both local and international, appealing to a wide spectrum of audiences.
