A Marriage of Cultures: Wedding Traditions of the Middle East and Beyond

The Middle Eastern Ensemble “Bereket” is a group comprised of UT students, faculty, staff and community members that perform musical pieces from the music and cultures of the Near, Middle East, North Africa, and former Ottoman territories.

This semester, “Bereket” is creating a Middle Eastern choir (Arabic, Turkish, Persian, Hebrew and Ladino) to sing alongside the ensemble for their performance on April 27th. This semester they will focus on wedding and love-song traditions of the Middle East, Mediterranean, and Central Asia.
