“A probing, personal and convincing exploration of the currents that run through different musical traditions – and tie the ancient past to the 21st century.” The Washington Post

“What Mr. Shaheen has in spades is technique.” The New York Times

Palestinian ‘oud and violin virtuoso Simon Shaheen dazzles his listeners as one of the most significant Arab musicians, performers and composers of his generation. An internationally acclaimed interpreter of traditional Arabic sounds, his soaring technique, melodic ingenuity and unparalleled grace have put him at the forefront of contemporary Arabic music. For this Santa Barbara performance, he leads an ensemble of musicians through a traditional repertoire as he reflects on the legacy of Arabic music.
