Join us for a concert featuring traditional and original Middle Eastern songs from Salaam.

Join us for a concert featuring Salaam. Since its founding in 1993, Salaam has been delighting audiences for years with its unique blend of traditional and original Middle Eastern music.  Exquisitely rendered melodies are woven with stories and musings, taking the listener on a musical journey.  Their sound, while deeply rooted in maqam and entrancing Middle Eastern rhythms, is infused with the band's fresh and innovative interpretations.  They have performed throughout the US, recorded eight albums, and have been interviewed and featured on NPR's All Things Considered.  Salaam, whose name means Peace, is a musical ambassador for peaceful coexistence. 

The Circulating Sound Concert series features live music on the second Sunday of every month at 2:00 in the Clowes Auditorium at Central Library. Bonus concerts occur other days and locations as opportunities arise.

Made possible by Friends of the Library through gifts to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.

While you are at Central Library, check out the Iran in Revolt exhibit, in the Yellow Gallery December 29, 2023 through January 22, 2024. 

Also check out these lists featuring Arab American Poets, and The Road Goes Ever On - Travel Memoirs in Asia.

About the branch

As the hub of the Indianapolis Public Library system, Central Library showcases renowned architecture and services. The original 1917 building, designed by Paul Cret and constructed of Indiana limestone in the Greek Doric style, was considered one of the most outstanding secular buildings in the U.S. Its six-story glass and steel-framed addition, designed by Evans Woollen, opened in 2007.
