Naseer Shamma

in Non-Guitar Dosage

Today’s N-GD features Naseer Shamma, an Iraqi Oud player, performing his own composition “Hilal-alsaba.” He has a unique style of playing the Oud (watch 2nd video to see what I mean), and perhaps because he’s constructed an 8-string version of the Oud (usual is 6) based on a 9-th century transcript by Al-Farabi.

And listen to this composition of his, Alamiryya. If Flamenco and Blues fused, this is what it would sound like.
