Rabih Abou-Khalil Trio

Hybrid jazz

Rabih Abou-Khalil Oud
Luciano Biondini Accordion
Jarrod Cagwin Percussion

For the past three decades, like a musical Ulysses, this inspired innovator of Middle Eastern music has tirelessly travelled with his oud around the fringes of a modal and nomadic jazz. Accompanied by loyal musicians, united on stage as a trio, Rabih Abou Khalil transcends tradition, with a firm belief that this is the best way to keep it alive. Expressing solemn or sad things in a joyful manner, this engaged artist, who has a great love of freedom, justice and spirituality, "plays with a hunger, for those who are hungry, to fight wrongs"... And we are more than willing to join him on his journey!
