AYRAD (pictured above)
Boathouse Restaurant & Music House
Ayrad explores myriad musical styles, shifting from Andalusian and Berber rhythms to Reggae, Raï and Latin grooves. Formed by Hamza Abouabdelmajid and oboist Annick Beauvais, Ayrad is now a collective made up of six talented multi-instrumentalists – all masters of world music cross-pollination. In addition to creating their own compositions, the group breathes new life into pieces drawn from Maghrebian, Arab-Andalusian and Moroccan-Jewish repertoires.

Saturday, April 11 @ 8PM
LES CHICLETTES À HOLLYWOOD!
