Oud Music – Playlist

The Oldest String Instrument of the Humankind

The origin of the oud belongs to the ancient times and similar instruments were used by the Babylonian and ancient Egypt an. In Arabic culture, oud is played as “king of the instruments” until today.
I compose modern style music on oud – But I play traditional oud and try to use whole possibility of expression with its sound.
