Fourth Friday Concert
Dara Anissi
Oud Music

The music of Dara Anissi was written for the ancient
Middle Eastern instrument the oud and for the Dumbek, a Middle Eastern drum.

The songs are original and were influenced by
Arabic, Turkish, Persian, Celtic, and elements of Jazz and Classical music.
The songs have structured melodies

with areas of improvisiation for both instruments.
The inspiration for these songs came from
current world events, poems, history, and nature.

Dara Anissi and Nikolai Ruskin will be performing songs
from their current CD “Cages.”
