As Smadj puts it, the oud is hidden somewhere among the minutest details of jazz, in the charm of pop and in the energy of rock; it takes from each and every musical genre while maintaining its own spirit. Originally from Tunisia and residing in Istanbul, oud virtuoso, composer and arranger Smadj is a true world artist. In this performance he will bring together the Mediterranean’s best musicians and lead them on an expedition from West to East.
