The Nation Press -

Abu Dhabi-Thenation Press - Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage is proud to present for the first time in UAE, a performance of world-celebrated Tunisian musician Anouar Brahem. The performance is part of our highly successful World Music Series 2008-09. It has taken Anouar Brahem a mere ten years to establish himself as one of the most original and talented musicians yet to record on the prestigious ECM label. Brahem is a master Oud player, who is recognised as a phenomenon by critics and audiences: his music moves across genres, from the rich repertory of jazz to the traditions of the Mediterranean and the Arab and Islamic worlds; from his native Tunisia to the confines of India and Iran.?
He has collaborated with such famous artists as Jan Garbarek, John Surman and Dave Holland. He is now mentioned among the greatest musicians on the international scene, and has played Washington Square Chruch in New-York, New-Orleans Jazz Festival (USA), Frankfurt International Jazz Festival (Germany), Lumine Hall in Tokyo (Japan), Royal Academy of Music in London (GB), Zürich International Jazz Festival (Switzerland), Uméa Jazz Festival (Sweden), Theater of Beyrouth (Liban). In January 1995, he was invited for an inaugural conert at the new Cité de la Musique in Paris.

Listening to Anwar Brahem live in concert can only be described as a unique musical experience
