The Orquestra Àrab de Barcelona and singer Judit Neddermann offer a concert specially designed to celebrate Mediterranean Day 2022 at the Born Center for Culture and Memory in Barcelona.

In several songs, the voice of the young Catalan singer and composer Judit Neddermann joins the traditional and contemporary Arabic music, of fusion and crossbreeding, practised by the formation directed by Mohammad Soulimane.

The concert is the central event, open to the public, of the Mediterranean Day 2022 in Barcelona, ​​organised by the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed), the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), and the City Council of Barcelona, ​​in collaboration with the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation of the Spanish Government.

Mediterranean Day

The Mediterranean Day was established in 2020 by the 42 countries of the Union for the Mediterranean – the only international body in Barcelona, ​​which brings together the 27 countries of the European Union and 15 coastal countries of the Mediterranean – to celebrate the common heritage and to bet on the dialogue between the cultures and the peoples of the region.

Celebrated every November 28, the date has a strong symbolic component given that on that day in 1995 all EU member countries and their neighbors in the South and East of the Mediterranean met for the first time and began the so-called Barcelona Process, a joint initiative to work for a Mediterranean of peace, shared prosperity and dialogue between peoples. The UfM secretariat is currently making sure to continue with the work started then.

The concert can be followed live online.
