03/22 | Tarek Abdallah and Adel Shams El Din – World Music Wednesday


Egyptian duo Tarek Abdallah and Adel Shams el Din celebrate the Golden Age of the Egyptian oud on their debut release, Wasla. Tarek hails from Alexandria, and is well-versed in the traditional repertoire of the Egyptian oud. Adel is an Alexandrine of an earlier generation; a master of the riqq frame drum and co-founder of the well-known sufi music group Al-Kindi. Together they forge a new path that pays tribute to tradition, while invigorating the traditional wasla song form with original instrumental compositions — inviting audiences to partake in the worldly, cosmopolitan delights of their hometown.
