Faraj Abyad, An Evening Of Tarab Meditation is a performance that explores the concept within Arabic music called Tarab. Tarab can be defined as "a state of ecstasy induced by a connection to music." Faraj and his 12 piece orchestra will take the audience on a journey to achieve the state of Tarab. The concert will begin with original compositions by Faraj Abyad and then will continue to known classics from Oum Kalthoum, Sabah Fakhri, and Abdel Halim Hafez.
