In collaboration with oud legend Naseer Shamma, The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi will organise a series of performances with Bait Al Oud musicians under the theme "Visits from Bait Al Oud" which will be streamed live online.
A continuation of ‘Naseer Shamma & Friends’, the successful online concert which spread a message of hope during the current pandemic. Bait Al Oud musicians from all over the world will perform from the safety of their homes under the artistic supervision of Shamma.
The event will feature three virtual performances: The Story of the Oud", "Bait Al Oud and Abu Dhabi Classics: Universal Mozart", and "Bait Al Oud’s Tribute to Classical Arabic Singing".
These virtual concerts will showcase the wide range of instruments taught at the Bait Al Oud school, including the oud, violin, qanoon, vocal and cello. They will also pay tribute to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, where selected classical musicians from Europe and Asia come together to perform his music, with a special focus on compositions inspired by the Arab World.
As the centre of the Arab World’s cultural identity and musical heritage, graduated students and distinguished teachers from Bait Al Oud Abu Dhabi, will finally offer a phenomenal instrumental and vocal experience paying tribute to the greatest Arabic voices such as Umm Kulthoum, Fairuz and much more.
