ALJANUBIA: MIDDLE EASTERN MUSIC IN SOUTH AMERICA

Updated: Jan 17


This project, curated by Selectorchico (Nandy Cabrera), son of Uruguayan Maoist writer, journalist and poet Sarandy Cabrera, uses the mixtape as a narrative research device to showcase the music of the Middle East, the Levant, and Asia Minor recorded or released in Latin America during the second half of the 20th century. Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay are the countries where these records were found, in streets and markets, second-hand stores and personal collections. Many thanks to Elías Dabbe, record seller, music collector and DJ of the 28-year-old Mundo Arabe program in Argentina.


This mix was originally curated for presentation at Fiesta Latinarab: - Music from the Middle East to the South in Montevideo, Uruguay, November 2020, and sponsored by the Institut Français d'Argentine, Cine Fértil, Festival Latinarab.
