The Muslim Choral Ensemble from Sri Lanka is the first Muslim ensemble in South Asia devoted exclusively to music of the Muslim world. Drawing inspiration from the Islamic music tradition which spans more than a millennium, the MCE’s main focus is to perform an often neglected part of Muslim culture. It has garnered reviews and critical acclamation from an audience which was exposed to the Muslim musical tradition for the first time. They were invited to be part of the International Choral Festival organized by Yale. It was featured as part of the International Festival of Arts & Ideas on June 14th, for more information about the performance, click here.
