Moskitto Bar/Moneka Arabic Jazz

  • Drom taberna 458 Queen Street West Toronto, ON, M5V 2A8 Canada (map)

A project reflecting Ahmed Moneka’s journey through Toronto’s culture and music scene. It introduces Maqam, Arabic music skills that he learned in Baghdad, Iraq where he grew up. Also mixed with African grooves and rhythms that Ahmed incorporates from his African roots.

Jazz and blues are fantastic genres to bridge his Afro-Arabic background with a diverse array of Torontonian performers. 

Ahmed will also be performing as part of Moskitto Bar!

A hypnotic blend of arabic rhythms, Celtic melodies with a Gypsy heart. Perepare the be blown away by this fusion of cultures in a way you’ve never seen live before
