With such an epic sound fusing jazz with Middle Eastern traditional music, Bero Saker’s years of experience in playing the oud come to impress the audience again and again.
Mohammed is a pioneer in reviving old patterns of traditional Arabic and Bedouin rhythms. He also has a degree in music technology. Playing the riq with oud and piano makes him an essential part of this unique genre of music.
Bassem has always had this oriental influence on his classical and jazzy piano playing. Singing his originals in Arabic and English, he touches the hearts of his audience as his performances are always memorable.
