Along with the Arab House of Oud Orchestra, Naseer Shamma performed at Baalbeck International Festival 2010 on July 31st at the Courtyard of the Two Temples.
Shamma is the only musician to have constructed an eight-string oud or lute following the manuscript of the famous 9th century music theorist Al-Farabi. This renowned Arab-Iraqi musician mixes the traditional touch on the Oud along with his modern creative talent.
The night was magical for Arab and Oud fans who were taken back by the music that revives Arab music history and maintains a sense of modernity to it.
