Presented by Young Auditorium

Tarek Abdallah, a composer, oud player, and musicologist from Alexandria in Egypt, draws his inspiration from the "Nahda" era, the golden age of the art of Egyptian oud solo (1910-1930). The oud is both ancestor and conteporary of the guitar, lute, and bouzouki, and in Tarek's playing, you will hear echoes of flamenco, rembetica, and blues music. He discovered a passion for his music, long neglected in his native Egypt, when he arrived to study in France over a decade ago. His album, WASLA, Egyptian Musical Suites, was recorded with Egyptian percussionist, Adel Shams El-Din. Adel plays a riqq, a tambourine-like instrument. The wasla is an expression of the musical suite, developed by different Arab traditions.
