Musician Malek Jandali Plays Ugaritic Songs at American Theatres.

Damascus, (SANA) -- Syrian musician Malek Jandali on Wednesday played his album 'Echoes form Ugarit' at the National Museum's theatre in the City of Detroit, Michigan, USA.

A huge attendance from the USA and the Syrian community were there at the theatre enjoying the album.

In an interview with SANA, Jandali said his attempt to republish the oldest written music in the world took him 5 years.

It aimed at affirming the true historic value of Ugarit culture that presented to the world the first alphabet, the first theoretic science for music and the diyatonic heptagon musical scale 1000 year before Pythagoras of Greece.

He added that the first abstract painting in the world, which dates back to 8700 BC, was discovered lately near the Syrian city of Aleppo.

The resounding applause after the show was over proved that 'Echoes form Ugarit' was able to convey its cultural message.

The performance was followed by an album signing.

The album toped the sales at Virgin Megastore when it was released in 2009.

Jandali is due to hold a charity concert at Queens University's theater.

The concert's revenues will go to Pakistan flood victims.

Jandali will also participate in the 'World Music Festival' in the city of Montreal, Canada next month.

Later he will travel to Houston, Texas upon the invitation of Rice University's musical institute.
