Simon Shaheen

The 'ud and violin virtuoso marks the Arab Spring's first anniversary with music of the second Arab renaissance, when the Middle East's greatest composers celebrated the end of colonialism with magnificent pride, dignity, and self-expression. Which is to say these songs from the '50s and '60s could have been written yesterday. Shaheen leads a sextet featuring the great Moroccan singer Nidal Ibourk and guest dancer Elena Lantini.
