  • Joseph Tawadros oud

The five time ARIA Award-winning Joseph Tawadros isn’t afraid to try new things. Challenging traditional musical forms, and pushing boundaries in metre and melody, this exciting program features original music by the acclaimed composer and oud virtuoso. His works take inspiration from the Arabic modal system (maqam) and blend them seamlessly with elements of western classical, jazz, world, folk, and even metal and bluegrass. From thrilling and furiously-paced numbers to beautifully introspective and tranquil compositions, it is woven together by Joseph’s trademark lyricism and the striking contemporary musicality of his oud.
