Refreshing humor, inspiring songs, and encouraging words are embedded in every concert. This trio has been acknowledged as one of the finest in the business, having received many awards including Song of the Year, Album of the Year, Trio of the Year, Male Group of the Year, Best Live Performers, Artist of the Year and more.

March 29, 2017: World Music Showcase

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.
