Program notes from Naseer Shamma's Spirits concert at the Barbican Centre in London, 11th July 2018

as the show came to an end the audience gave a standing ovation, and followed was a half an hour of interactions with the crowd, Shamma thanked the organisers that made the event possible, this significant due to the fact that Shamma had not performed in England since over a decade.

Shamma promised to work out a future tour in which he would hold concerts in a number of cities in the United Kingdom. Capriccio are working with the Maestro to ensure the tour comes as soon as possible and will keep you updated.
