The Magic of the Orient – a Concert with Oud & Double Bass
Bilal Irshed and Rasmus Møldrup
Experience a tribute to the oud and listen to classical Arabic music in a new masterful interpretation backed by a double bass. The oud, with its warm and meditative sound, is essential to the Arabic music tradition, but in the hands of Bilal Irshed, it truly serves to capture the history and the beauty of the Orient. Bilal Irshed is a soulful musician who is influenced by Middle Eastern folk music as well as the classical Arabic repertoire, but who is not afraid to blend in new and modern ideas.
Bilal Irshed, a Palestinian composer and oud virtuoso, is viewed as one of the foremost exponents of the oud. In this duet, Bilal Irshed will be accompanied by the Danish bass player, Rasmus Møldrup.
