Jazz and Oriental Oud, Anouar Brahem

Anouar Brahem-أنور ابراهم

"Tunisian born Oud(Oriental Lute) player, Anouar Brahem is considered a master of this complex stringed instrument that has been a staple of Arabic music for centuries. Brahem has collaborated with musicians from around the world, combining his Oud with an array of complementary sounds that give the traditional rhythms of North African music a modern, even avant-garde Jazz twist.

Brahem is the Oud’s conjurer, a master at bringing out the acoustic magic that this age-old traditional Oriental Lute carries: All the musical heritage of the Arab and Islamic worlds. Anouar Brahem is recognized as one of the rare composers and improvisers capable of inventing a form of music that is totally rooted in a highly sophisticated ancestral culture, yet eminently contemporary with global ambitions.From the rich repertory of Jazz (John Surman, Dave Holland and Jan Garbarek are just some of the leading players to succumb to his melodic spells), to the rich traditions of Mediterranean and Oriental influence (from his native Tunisia to the confines of India and Iran), his sensitive yet rigorous music ceaselessly redefines a cleverly composite universe of poetry and culture, ever balancing between discretion and sensuality, nostalgia and contemplation.."
