The sage musicality of Australian oud player and composer, Joseph Tawadros, is demonstrated at full strength on his latest album, World Music as he enlists an array of intriguing instruments from across the planet to create richly textured global landscapes. The album moves easily from hypnotic rhythms to subtle stillness, from exhilarating dances to swaggering grooves. It can be ethereal, sensual and joyful, all united by Joseph’s integral musicianship.

Joseph forges his own odyssey across cultures, traditions, borders and time, playing multiple instruments alongside his oud. 

 

“For the ‘World Music’ album, I immersed myself in a range of genres, drawing upon my previous collaborations - practicing, adapting, improvising - letting my technical limitations on each instrument guide the course of the compositions. This is a very organic way of music making, letting the spirit of each instrument flow through me without striving for virtuosity.

 

’World Music’ is a soundtrack to the mind where music inspires imagination. Essentially, this is what binds us: No matter where we're from, we are not so different.”

 

'His profound instinct for making music that is a mirror of truth; a bridge between his heart and mind and those of his listeners.'            Sydney Morning Herald
