Description: Naseer Shamma is one of Iraq's leading cultural icons. He is a leader of the famed Iraqi oud school, a virtuosic approach to the instrument (an Arab lute) that began in the early 20th century, combining Turkish techniques and aesthetics with the melodies and spirit of traditional Iraqi maqam music. Both a composer and performer, Shamma has created an innovative approach to the oud, expanding its technical capabilities and influencing players across the Arab region. In his first performance in the US in more than a decade, Shamma will appear with his Al-Oyoun Ensemble -- seven virtuoso musicians from Cairo performing in a contemporary style of Shamma's own creation, which he calls Arab Chamber Music.
