Halim El-Dabh would have been 100 years this March. We continue to honour Halim El-Dabh by thinking, listening, playing, singing, dancing and summoning the voices of vitality as he has been doing for decades in his sonic endeavours. We celebrate the scope, diversity and depth in the work of the musician, Pan-Africanist, creative musicologist, seminal composer, and philosopher with HERE HISTORY BEGAN. TRACING THE RE/VERBERATIONS OF HALIM EL-DABH – the culmination of a five year long research, and our second homage to the oeuvre of one of the most seminal composers of the 20th century. With this endeavour into sound and its spaces, we honour our elder Halim El-Dabh whose work is an inspiration to us and guides us through a multifaceted history of music, philosophy and tools accessed and explored by El-Dabh through the years. Come with us on the journey.

SAVVY Contemporary respects the current measures to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. We wish everyone good health and safety.
