Never miss another 'Amira Kheir' show
Live Score For Sumurun (One Arabian Night): Amira Kheir
A ‘brilliant’ (NY Times) fantasy-drama of forbidden love based on the ‘Arabian Nights’, this landmark silent film was a collaboration by renowned director Ernst Lubitsch and early Hollywood superstar Pola Negri.
It is accompanied by a new live score fusing contemporary jazz and East African music with a multi-instrumental ensemble led by singer, musician and songwriter Amira Kheir, critically acclaimed for her ‘beautiful and fearless’ (Songlines) first album and recent London Jazz Festival debut.
Sudanese Italian singer-songwriter Amira Kheir is creating a sound that is inspired by traditional Sudanese singing and instrumentation, and blended with elements of jazz, soul, East and West African as well as Middle Eastern music. The result is a unique amalgamation of arrangements that give tasters of Sudan's rich musical and cultural heritage whilst being reflective of our ever merging world.
