01/13 | DIO Trio – World Music Wednesday


DIO offers a varied repertoire, rooted in the rich and diverse musical heritage of the Arab Middle East – both ancient, and contemporary. This comprises stanzas and the classics of Arabic music by the most renowned historical and contemporary composers; as well as original compositions by the trio’s members. The result is a music steeped in cultural heritage, modern and sleek in presentation, yet also nuanced, soulful, and authentic.

An acronym of its three members (Dima(vocals), Issam (Oud), Omar(Percussion)), the DIO Trio are truly larger than the sum of its parts. Each brings their own nuanced musical taste and training, which they manage to masterfully combine into a blend of eloquent and erudite music that touches the soul and expands the mind.
