A Little Lunch Music: Joseph & James Tawadros - Music of the Oud

Provided by:

Event runs from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM


The ARIA Award-winning Tawadros brothers aren’t afraid to try new things. Challenging traditional musical forms, and pushing boundaries in metre and melody, this exciting program features original music by composer and oud virtuoso Joseph Tawadros. His works take inspiration from the Arabic modal system (maqam) and blend them seamlessly with elements of western classical, jazz, world, folk, and even metal and bluegrass. From thrilling and furiously paced numbers to beautifully introspective and tranquil tracks, it is woven together by Joseph’s trademark lyricism and the striking contemporary musicality of his oud. He will be joined by his brother James Tawadros who plays an array of Arabic hand percussion that will add a thrilling new element in what promises to be a journey of genre and emotion.
