Tunisian Oud player and composer Anouar Brahem is set to perform his latest compositions during a concert in the Iranian capital Tehran.
French pianist Francois Couturier, German clarinetist Klaus Gesing and Swedish guitarist Bjorn Meyer will accompany the 58-year-old artist Brahem during the concert.
The group will perform pieces from Brahem’s 2014 album ‘Souvenance’ on September 22 and 23, 2015.
This will be Brahem’s second visit to Iran. His first performance during the 29th International Fajr Music festival was warmly welcomed by Iranian music lovers.
Anouar Brahem is best known for his innovative compositions, fusing Arab classical music, folk music and jazz.
Born in Tunis, Brahem studied Oud at Tunisia's National Conservatory of Music. He has worked with numerous musicians such as Maurice Bejart, Gabriel Yared, John Surman and Dave Holland.
Brahem has also held concerts in different countries, including the US and Canada, performing live with artists such as Tunisian percussionist Lassad Hosni and violinist Bechir Selmi, and Turkish clarinetist Barbaros Erkose.
