The Middle Eastern Music Ensemble explores vocal and instrumental traditions rooted in centuries of musical practice. The group meets weekly to play repertoire that spans a wide geographic, historical, and cultural terrain including folk, classical, and popular styles from around the Middle East.

Ensemble members learn maqamat (modes) and iqa’at (rhythms), the musical systems shared among musical traditions of the region.

The ensemble is directed by Nicholas Mangialardi and Rami El-Aassar.
