MOHAMED ABOZEKRY & KARKADé
North Adams, 7:30 p.m.
Cairo’s Mohamed Abozekry pushes the oud to maximum expressiveness, leading his Arab chamber quintet project Karkadé with swagger and improvisatory spirit. Mohamed Abozekry has that rare gift of combining limitless virtuosity with an unbridled imagination. An oud master still in his late twenties, Abozekry’s ambitions – to musically interpret the world around him and de-exoticize his instrument – mark him as a polymath of forms. mcla.ticketleap.com/karkade
