In December, we’ll be opening the doors of the Ismaili Centre, the home of the Ismaili Muslim community in Lisbon, for three guided tours and two concerts.

This is a chance to discover a unique building, which harmoniously combines eastern Islamic architecture with the architectural tradition of the Iberian Peninsula. The sumptuous gardens, still unknown to many Lisboetas, contain 300 trees and thousands of bushes and other plants.

The music that we’ll be taking to the Ismaili Centre is also a mixture of different influences: UDJAT are an ensemble inspired by the Mediterranean musical heritage, with a repertoire of originals in which Iberian and oriental roots can be heard, but also the Jewish tradition. Their music, with vocals accompanying the Portuguese guitar and percussion, summons up old sounds, but with a modern approach.
