The Oud is considered one of the oldest instruments still in use today. Depictions of the Oud have been found in drawings in Ancient Mesopotamia and Pharaohs have been found buried with their favourite Ouds. European music had an awakening of its own after the Oud made its way there as the Lute. Modern Arabic music has been shaped by unforgettable Oud players and their performances.
Maple Arts will take you through a wistful and magical evening presented by Anas Raslan with some of the most memorable songs played on the Oud and some unique taqasim.
