Naseer Shamma, the acclaimed Iraqi oud musician and composer, will perform with the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra on Friday, September 14, at 7pm.

For Shamma’s concert at the Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM), Lebanese conductor Andre El Hajj will conduct the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra.

Shamma is known for his unique style of playing and as an “Artist of Peace”. In 1999, he founded Egypt’s prestigious House of Arabian Oud.

Enlarging the global scope of his work, Shamma has considerable experience dialoguing with contemporary international artists in East-West exchanges, such as with world-renowned guitarist Enrico de Lemgour in a seminal 1997 soloist talk forum.

In 1999, Shamma performed with Pakistani sitarist Ashraf Khan, and in Spain in 2011, he shared the stage with sitarist Sharaf Khan and tabla player Shahbaz Hussein.

Shamma has composed countless works for theatre, television and radio, receiving high honours and winning many awards. In addition, he has released numerous successful compact discs, with Journey of the Soul as the latest.
