Iraqi composer and multi-instrumentalist Ameen Mokdad was trapped in hiding under the brutality of ISIS for two years in Mosul, Iraq. During that time he survived and told his story by writing an extraordinary repertoire of music…in secret.
On June 15, the NLCO, in partnership with Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet and Cuatro Puntos Ensemble, presented a music-and-dance performance of Ameen Mokdad’s The Curve, a collection of 19 original pieces composed during Mokdad’s years in hiding from the Islamic State.
