Vocalist and composer Luna Abu Nassar comes to the Oud Festival with her trio, echoing her song repertoire from two wonderful albums: Ahkilak (“I will tell you”) and Duwama (“vortex”). She hosts oud player and music therapist George Kandelfat from Nazareth, who has a traditional deep sound and has appeared at festivals worldwide.
Abu Nassar, who creates in Hebrew and Arabic, blends her two languages and musical worlds into a new work and presents her songs with captivating sensitivity and sincerity. With the trio she will perform her songs in special arrangements full of atmosphere and rhythm, moving between intimacy and minimalism and a wealth of sounds demonstrating the rich range of Abu Nassar and the musicians.
