I invite you to enjoy an Ud concert with the young Tunisian Ud player Nada Mahmoud.

The Ud instrument forms the backbone of the Arabic music and is a central part of the Middle Eastern culture.

According to the
“The ud (also spelled oud) once made a long journey from Baghdad to Andalusia, and formed the basis of a musical revolution in the West. Much of this influence is due to the legendary 9th-century musician Ziryab: polymath, innovator, composer, singer and more. He saw how to give the instrument new life, and laid the foundations of a range of musical traditions, including the Arab-Andalusian repertoire. Today, the ud appears in a number of musical genres. In jazz, it comes into its own as an instrument of innovation; in spiritual music we see how the ud reaches deep into the soul; the modern classical repertoire highlights the ud’s distinctive voice, as both a solo and orchestral instrument.”

Looking forward to seeing you.
