America at a Crossroads: Dissonance & Harmony: Arabic Music Goes West
DISSONANCE AND HARMONY: ARABIC MUSIC GOES WEST is a new documentary about forging ties between the West and Middle East through contemporary music that will air nationally on PBS on November 2 at 10 p.m. (check local listings). Directed and produced by Jonathan Brandeis, the 60-minute film follows legendary music impresario Miles Copeland as he visits different countries in the Middle East and meets with musicians, singers and producers who discuss their feelings about the West, and how the political situations and wars in their countries have shaped their music and careers. Copeland then brings them to the U.S. to collaborate with high-profile Western artists and present their music to U.S. audiences.
