OUD am Main
Oud am Main, Oud & Gitarre
The duo comes from a musical family from the historic city of Masyaf and wants to present his music in his new city Frankfurt.
Oud am Main plays both oriental and western music and lets listeners share in a mixture of the two musical traditions and everything in between.
The instrument "Al Oud" produces a sound that is saturated with melodic maqams. The guitar in turn represents the polyphonic vertical dimension of sound. The sound of these two equal-voiced instruments mingles to form an acoustic multi-dimensional unit that is very harmonious, though the two instruments have very different playing techniques.
Between guitar and oud are numerous countries, civilizations, cultures and peoples - and of course a fascinating music tradition and a magnificent amount of music and emotions!
