Bach's Erbarme Dich....Sung in Arabic

There's something about seeing a theorbo in the middle of a large ensemble that is totally badass. Fadia el-Hage joins the Netherlands Blazers Ensemble with oboist Bart Schneemann in a unique performance of J.S. Bach's Erbarme Dich from the St. Matthew Passion with the text sung in Arabic. Those chickens that you can see in the close-ups of Fadia are in fact part of a video installation (phew!).
