Athar (Sameer Makhoul)

A blend of traditional Arab music, ancient poetry and Turkish and Andalusian music.
A wealth of cultures and rhythms in music and poetry combine to create the unique voice of virtuoso oud performer and composer, Sameer Makhoul.
A remarkable sound, bold yet traditional, in a rich musical vernacular, flowing like the springs of the performerױs native village of Peki'in or like the sigh of the wind in its citrus groves.
A rare example of collaboration between Israelױs very finest Jewish and Arab musicians.
