Oud Musician In London
Ri is one of the few purely instrumental, professional and academically-trained women Oud players.
Her solo performances launch from the rich heritage as well as the sophisticated modern music of the levant, Middle-East and extend to neighboring genres from the further East.
She revisits the traditional musical material, presenting it in a dynamic style and she hand-picks instrumental and sung works of music to perform on Oud, sometimes accompanied by percussion.
Ri’s performances have played a role in reconnecting people with their traditional/modern music and have successfully introduced it to the wider audience from all musical backgrounds.
The sound she plays is mesmerizing, sentimental as well as lively and upbeat.
