Cal Poly Arab Music Ensemble Video:
'Lamma Bada Yatathanna' and 'Fuq Al-Nakhl'

The Cal Poly Arab Music Ensemble produced this video as its spring quarter final project: a performance of “Lamma Bada Yatathanna” (“When He Began Walking with a Swinging Gait)” and “Fuq Al-Nakhl” (“Above the Palm Trees”). Due to COVID-19, the group’s winter concert was canceled two days before its scheduled performance date. Out ofnecessity, the spring quarter's membership was scaled back, and classes met by videoconferencing. Like other groups around the world, the ensemble navigated displaced performance environments to work on music in new ways.
