Iraqi Music ... Of Land & People

 Fri 16th April at 6.00 pm GMT +1  



Tadhamun - Iraqi Women Solidarity 

Iraq Solidarity Month 2021 Event


While over the centuries civilizations flourished and died in a long succession along the banks of Tigris and Euphrates, music never lost its important function in the day to day life of Iraqi people.

An age - old heritage of great variety has been accumulated and preserved in the form of folk and religious music.  Almost every region along the two rivers kept its own style of country music.

Samplings of the richness of Iraqi music are introduced by :

Salim: Vocalist

Francesco Iannuzzelli: Oud

Azad Zangana: Percussions

الموسيقى العراقية ... صوت الشعب والارض
أمسية موسيقية افتراضية .  ستتم الساعة السادسة مساء الجمعة 16 ابريل . لحضورها اضغط على الرابط ادناه:
لم تفقد الموسيقى يوما مكانتها المهمة في حياة العراقيين، سواء كانوا في المدن أو الارياف، وعلى الرغم من ازدهار واندثار الحضارات، في تعاقب طويل، على ضفاف دجلة والفرات.
فتراكَمَ للعراق تراث بعيد الغور، شديد التنويع، وكان هذا التراث يُحفظ في أوقات التدهور، باشكال من الموسيقى الدينية والفولكلورية. وتحتفظ كل منطقة في ارجاء البلاد باسلوبها العريق الخاص.
في هذه الامسية سنستمع الى نماذج موسيقية وغنائية تجمع بين القديم والجديد، بأداء:
غناء: سليم
عزف على العود: فرانشيسكو ايانوزيلي
ايقاع:  آزاد زنكنة

Halt All Executions! Abolish The Death Penalty!

We women of Tadhamun condemn the persisting practice of arbitrary arrests by the Iraqi security forces. We condemn their arrests of women in lieu of their men folk. These are 'inherited' practices. We are alarmed by credible media reports of the Green Zone government’s intentions of executing hundreds of Iraqi men and women.

Samarra Minrate built in 852 AD

Samarra Minrate built in 852 AD
Building of 1 500 massive police station !
From the angle of the photo, it is possible to calculate that the complex is being built at E 396388 N 3785995 (UTM Zone 38 North) or Lat. 34.209760° Long. 43.875325°, to the west of the Malwiya (Spiral Minaret), and behind the Spiral Cafe.
While the point itself may not have more than Abbasid houses under the ground, it is adjacent to the palace of Sur Isa, the remains of which can be seen in the photo. While the initial construction might or might not touch the palace, accompanying activities will certainly spread over it.Sur Isa can be identified with the palace of al-Burj, built by the
Abbasid Caliph al-Mutawakkil, probably in 852-3 (Northedge, Historical Topography of Samarra, pp 125-127, 240). The palace is said to have cost 33 million dirhams, and was luxurious. Details are given by al-Shabushti, Kitab al-Diyarat.
Samarra was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO at the end of June. The barracks could easily have been built elsewhere, off the archaeological site.--
