An evening of mesmerising music, composed especially for the Oud and percussive instruments of the Middle East, by the acclaimed musician and composer Khyam Allami, who has just been shortlisted for a Songlines Music Award 2012.

Individual, inventive and energetic, Khyam Allami is a London based artist of Iraqi descent. His passion for music has lead him on an remarkable journey from child violinist in Damascus to rock drummer in London to the stage of the BBC Proms.

Allami has developed new work especially for this tour based on a ‘double duo’ idea featuring oud and percussion. Working with highly respected Palestinian oud player Ahmad Al-Khatib, extraordinary percussionist Youssef Hbeisch (as seen with Trio Joubran), as well as Italian frame drum master Andrea Piccioni,  expect a wonderful night of enchanting and soul-touching music.
