The Bluebird, the Mystic and the Fool - Album Launch

“One of the most impressive musicians to emerge in Australia … with a dazzling technique dispensing hair-raising tempos… His writing displays a real depth of emotion …revelling in a zest for life and celebration.” – The Australian

Joseph Tawadros AM is a 4-times ARIA award winning master of the Oud, a Middle Eastern lute. In his trio are Matt McMahon - one of Australia’s finest jazz pianists and James Tawadros – his brother and a virtuoso player of Egyptian percussion.

Expect a thrilling mix of Middle Eastern, jazz, traditional sounds and contemporary innovations, including music from Joseph’s new album The Bluebird, the Mystic and the Fool.

Joseph, 34, was born in Cairo, grew up in Sydney and currently lives in London. He performs all over the world and often plays with orchestras presenting his original works, including BBC Symphony Orchestra, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Melbourne and Sydney Symphony Orchestras and the Academy of Ancient Music in London. 

Joseph has recorded 14 albums of original music and he is the oud player you hear on the ARIA award winning Ali’s Wedding soundtrack. He is touring with the Australian Chamber Orchestra in May and June 2018, and presenting trio and solo concerts around the same time.

“They are phenomenal musicians, able to improvise and play off each other as they develop fusion music that crosses between classical, bluegrass, folk and jazz. Never less than electrifying and always entertaining, given Joseph’s wild sense of humour and ability to laugh at many taboos, this was a sensational concert...” - Arts Hub

The Trio:
Joseph Tawadros | Oud
James Tawadros | Egyptian percussion (req and bendir)
