TABADOL is an Arabic word meaning exchange. The Tabadol Project brings together US composer and musician Gene Coleman with the Lebanese musicians and artists Raed Yassin, Christine Sehnaoui, Mazen Kerbaj, Sharif Sehnaoui and Ziad El Ahmadie. From Feb. 16th until 25th 2007 they will work and perform with over 50 US musicians and artists in Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore, Washington DC. and at Ohio University. For the Chicago and Philadelphia programs, they will be joined by the Italian percussionist Fabrizio Spera.
The project includes workshops, meetings, symposia and concerts that explore our globalized society through experimental music, dance and video.
The Tabadol Project is a production of Soundfield, NFP. Major funding for the Tabadol Project is provided by The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State and The Kennedy Center in Washington DC. The visit of Fabrizio Spera is made possible in part by the support of CEMAT and SONORA.
