Event Description

Joseph Tawadros concert in Candelo!

Joseph Tawadros is one of the few artists to score an elusive ARIA hat-trick (2012, 2013 & 2014), and he pioneers new musical territory with a unique voice that spans world, middle-eastern, jazz and classical genres; plus legendary oud skills and a masterly gift for composition.

Joseph continues to create modern platforms for one of the world’s oldest instruments, remaining true to its soul while pairing it with unlikely accents including a Hammond Organ, a Vibraphone, an Accordion, a Tuba, a Banjo and an Electric Bass.

A virtuoso of amazing diversity and sensitivity, Joseph continues to appear in concert halls worldwide, dazzling audiences with his brilliant technique, his passionate musicianship and his joyous style of performance. He’s also known for a caustic sense of humour and in 2013 was named as one of Sydney’s top 100 Most Influential.

Always willing to push the boundaries and challenge traditional musical forms and rhythms, his efforts have led him to many unique collaborations, including with the likes of Zakir Hussain, John Abercrombie, Béla Fleck, Lior, Neil Finn and Katie Noonan.
