In a nutshell
A night of outstanding music, flamenco dance breaking down long-standing cultural and historical barriers
Iraqi Oud player Attab Haddad has had an interest in flamenco more or less since he started playing the oud. Flamenco's forms, rhythms and melodies have influenced a large part of his work and he is still fascinated by the connections between flamenco and Middle Eastern music.
What to Expect
This show aims to highlight this connection and build on it with original compositions and renditions of melodies from Andalucian times and the Middle East that shows the common thread that runs through these traditions al the way to Iraq.
Attab is an oud player and composer who has worked within music, theatre, dance, film and advertising. Described as a ‘virtuoso’ by The Guardian, his playing has featured on independent cinema and Hollywood productions and he has performed in the UK, Europe, USA, and India as bandleader and band member. He leads the Attab Haddad Ensemble which released its debut album, Days Distinctive, to critical acclaim.
