Happened at Ameriyah

Long before lute instruments were in use in Europe, the oud had been an essential part of the musical tradition of the Arab countries. Iraqi-born Naseer Shamma, who has been based in Egypt since the late 1990s, is among the world’s leading oud players. He brings his own compositions to the Pierre Boulez Saal for a special solo concert.

The concert is supported by the Abu Dhabi Festival.
