Joseph Tawadros – Oud Virtuoso
September 18, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm
Born in Cairo and raised in Sydney, Joseph Tawadros is a multi-award winning composer, improviser and champion of his extraordinary instrument, the Oud. His music, while rooted in Arabic traditions, is boundary and genre-crossing, absorbing the influence and elements of western classical, jazz, world, folk, and even metal and bluegrass. His concerts showcase his fierce virtuosity, alongside the exceptionally intimate and lyrical capabilities of his instrument. Works for solo Oud will be featured in this concert alongside ensemble pieces featuring other artists from the festival and duo works with piano and violin.
