Known for her inventive music, Ghalia Benali is one of the most remarkable, multi-faceted talents working in Tunisia. Her expressive voice and melodic compositions reflect a variety of influences stretching from Arabic folk and jazz traditions to contemporary Indian classical music.

Join Benali for a evening of soulful music that is at once modern and deeply-rooted in the country’s rich traditions.
