Omar Bashir, oud

Omar Bashir, oud : Tribute to Munir Bashir
BRUSSELS  •  Salle Henry Le Boeuf  •  Ongoing
The Iraqi-Hungarian Omar Bashir follows in the footsteps of his father, the legendary Iraqi oud-player Munir Bashir, one of the first musicians to introduce the oud to a broad public in the West. After many years playing with him, Omar has developed his own musical identity on the oud and the lute, with influences from the Hungarian Gypsy style. He has performed all over the world, presenting a brilliant mix of traditional Arab music and jazz-like improvisation. The programme for this concert includes music by his father and by his father's brother Jamil, along with pieces for solo oud, in the spirit of Omar's widely acclaimed album Taqsm.
