The new Andalusian orchestra

November 20th, 2010

The New Andalusian Orchestra is the successor of the previous Israeli Andalusian Orchestra which had been terminated in February 2009 due to the dismissal of all musicians and workers, most of whom refused to be dissuaded and therefore continued to hold rehearsals and concerts in a steadfast struggle for government recognition and public funding.

This struggle was met with success when the Israeli Ministry of Culture granted the orchestra recognition on February 28, 2010. This was accompanied by the decision to retroactively fund the orchestra for their activities in 2009 and to veto the Ashdod Municipality’s petition to transfer these funds to their service.

Most of the musicians play from sheet music on classical western instruments- Violin, Viola, Cello, Contrabass and Oboe. These are accompanied by a traditional ensemble of classic eastern instruments- oud, Kamanja (knee violin), Kanoun, Ney, Darbuka and tar all of whom play without sheet music, through the knowledge that has been passed on to them from hundreds of generations.

In a week or so we`ll bring to you a filmed general rehersal that took place before a special event in the memory of Joe Amar. This rehearsal was filmed with a consumer videocam using the camera`s mic only.
