The Maqam Hang
Brooklyn Maqam Hang is our flagship, twice-monthly music series! We are happy to offer a place where people can gather consistently to play and listen to this beautiful music on a regular basis.
Each hang starts with an opening set by a featured ensemble, followed by an open session where musicians from the community can jam together, playing repertoire from the Arab tradition and other maqam-based music.
For our featured set, we program performances by both seasoned veterans as well as newly established artists in the New York scene.
Afterwards the jam is not only a more informal setting for the audience to enjoy the music, but also an opportunity for newer players to learn by playing alongside more experienced artists on the bandstand.
We have events every other week, so please check the schedule for upcoming nights. Come and listen, talk to us about joining in, or just come for the hang!
