About the Event

Join us for a beautiful evening under the stars with world-class music from the El-Firdaus Ensemble. Prior to the show, enjoy a special catered meal from the renowned Sizler Tandoori from Orlando, serving delicious Indian cuisine (vegetarian and vegan selections available). The ticket price includes both dinner and the concert.

All proceeds go directly to the Khadija Foundation to address hunger and food insecurity locally and in areas of strife globally.

The El-Firdaus Ensemble follows a combination of different musical styles, such as western classical sounds, Celtic music and flamenco, as well as new arrangements of numerous pieces from traditional Islamic Sufi music, which originate from Arabic, Andalusian and Turkish sources. The lyrics are mostly in Arabic and inspired by the poetry of the well-known Sufis of Al-Andalus as well as from the Arab world such as Ibn Arabi and Al-Shushtari. In addition, its repertoire consists of musical adaptations of poems in old Spanish (called Aljamiado), which the Moriscos wrote down using Arabic script. The ensemble uses a variety of instruments, a combination of Persian, Arabic and Turkish (e.g. Oud, Daf, Darbuka, Riq, Ney longitudinal flute) and western classical instruments (e.g. violin, cello) as well the flamenco guitar. The ensemble consists of a number of singers, some of whom are soloists and others who sing in choirs.
