Music is a journey: across countries, cultures, and time. Nowhere is this truer than with the Arabic string instrument the Oud. Over 4500 years, the Oud spread across the Middle East and North Africa, and features in the music of many regions. A relative of the guitar, the Oud continues to provide an important connection between the past and the present. Ali Alghrairi presents a unique opportunity to witness the magical sounds of the Oud, playing classics from the Middle East and Europe, in a celebration of the power of music to bring people together.
