Joseph Tawadros – Oud Recital

Cadogan Hall, London, UK

Cairo-born, longtime Sydney-resident oud virtuoso Joseph Tawadros has reimagined the range of music accessible to his instrument, the ancient Middle- Eastern lute.

Steeped in traditional Arabic music (his grandfather was a respected composer, oud player and violinist) but also an avid collaborator with a diverse array of musicians, he draws equally on jazz and folk styles in a kaleidoscopic celebration of his instrument.
