A concert by the musician Mister Aleph, organized by the Lebanese Club in the Czech Republic in cooperation with the Czech-Arab Society and under the patronage of the deputy mayor of Prague Ing. M. Kousalíková.
When: Wednesday, 2008-11-19, 7 pm
Where: The music hall of the Conservatory of Jan Dejl, Maltézské náměstí 14, Prague 1 – Malá Strana,
Mister Aleph was accompanied by two other musicians, and together, they introduced to the audience traditional Lebanese music and its mix with Cuban, Spanish and French music. The atmosphere was friendly and open. Due to the great interest of the public, there were not enough places to sit, so the coordinators had to bring in extra chairs during the concert. A great dignity was added to the atmosphere by the beautiful surroundings of the concert hall of the Conservatory of Jan Dejl. It was a great opportunity to meet our colleagues from the Czech national network and to meet new people from the Mediterranean area. We believe that it was a beautiful night for everybody concerned, and we are looking forward to other activities organized by our members.
