Comoran Artist Nawal Tours North America

Nawal ~ Voice of the Comoros began her
North American tour with performances at the Chicago
World Music Festival and will continue to tour through October.
Between traditional and contemporary, Nawal’s music weaves a rich dialog of
cultures, a reflection of the diverse character of life in her native islands.
Indo-Arabian-Persian music meets Bantu polyphonies, Sufi chants and the
syncopated rhythms of the Indian Ocean. An acoustic roots-based fusion, her
music is rhythmically compelling and beautifully lyrical.Tour Dates:
