A Glimpse Into Fez – 7 November

We’ve got a treat for you this Saturday Night! We have Hamza from Fez giving a demonstration (with hands-on) on Islamic Geometry with Paper-Card Embroidery, and also a delicious taste of Moroccan culture with his Oud (“gitar arab”) playing skills. Joining Hamza for a jam will be local talents: Sein al-Qudsy: ex-Ruffedge member, RnB and Hiphop artist, actor and film-maker; and Husni: social artist, and percussionist. Don’t know who Hamza is? Hamza el-Fasiki is an apprentice artisan etcher in the copper-smith craft, learning the trade from his father, who has been etching on copper tea trays since 1969. Earlier, he had started his musical studies in 1999, and began a musical career by 2004. He is an Andalusian musician and plays four instruments; Classical Guitar, Andalusian Oud (that’s “Gitar Arab” to you and me ;-P ), Harmonica and Ukulele. He is founder of Craft Draft social business in Fez which aims at preserving the Moroccan craft through bringing it to the masses.
