concert at the Hammam Al Ayn

On July 7th Austrian mezzo-soprano Aglaia Maria Mika performed songs of Hildegard of Bingen at the Hammam Al Ayn at the Centre for Jerusalem Studies in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The artist accompanied herself on a shrutibox which is an old Indian instrument and explained to the audience about the text, history and structure of Hildegard of Bingen's music.

Aglaia Mika will come back to Al Quds University in October 2012 in order to give lectures and workshops for music therapy. We are also looking forward to further performances with the artist in Abu Dies, Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
