Iraqi Cultural Club at AUB in collaboration with Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs held a Cultural Live Performance in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Iraq invasion "City of Salt: A Meditation on Time, War and Place" City of Salt is a three-piece experimental trio of oud, clarinet and electric guitar that builds on Arabic and free-improvisation traditions to create another 'stream' of improvisation—a more open, extended approach to form and melody, both 'oriental' and 'occidental'. Marking the 10-year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, their performance featured a collage of Baghdad's cityscapes quilted together by Iraqi filmmaker Parine Jaddo. These recently shot visual fragments came to life with City of Salt's streams of improvised soundscapes, threading meanings of a reality in a dream-like dystopia. The performance is curated by Rasha Salti. City of Salt performers: • Paed Conca, Clarinet • Omar Dewachi, Oud • Sam Shalabi, Electric Guitar
