Philadelphia’s active Middle Eastern music scene is steeped in a tradition that crosses ethnic and cultural boundaries. A concert devoted to the music of Greece featured Drexel’s Mediterranean Ensemble playing with special guests Bill Koutsouros, founder of the Philadelphia-based Eastern Mediterranean World Fusion band, Animus, and the Eastern European women’s vocal ensemble, Svitanya, on Wednesday, March 10th at 7:30 PM at the Mandell Theater.

In the grand Drexel tradition of innovation, those who came to the concert were able to download a new iPhone drum application allowing concert-goers to play along with the performers in real time.
