Tarek Abdallah, a composer, oud player and musicologist from Alexandria in Egypt, draws his inspiration from the "Nahda" era, the golden age of the art of Egyptian oud solo (1910-1930).He discovered a passion for this music, long neglected in his native Egypt, when he arrived to study in France over a decade ago. 


His album WASLA, Egyptian musical suites, recorded with renowned Egyptian percussionist Adel Shams El-Din will bring this music to a far wider audience.
