JOSEPH TAWADROS (OUD)
Egyptian-born, Australian resident Joseph Tawadros has established himself as one of the world’s leading oud performers and composers. A virtuoso of amazing diversity and sensitivity, Joseph performs in concert halls worldwide, dazzling audiences with his brilliant technique, passionate musicianship and his joyous style of performance.
His solo performances are engaging, intimate concerts where his sense of humour will feature almost as much as his beautiful playing.
He also plays with a jazz quartet and orchestras all over the world:
In March 2017, Joseph was the special guest and composer with the BBC Orchestra for the BBC Proms concerts in Dubai.
His first Oud Concerto was premiered in May with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
Always willing to push the boundaries and challenge traditional musical forms and rhythms, his efforts have led him to create unique collaborations. His albums have received the World Music Album award at the ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) Awards in three consecutive years.
