    Anouar Brahem: November 17th - 23rd

    Tunisian oud-player Anouar Brahem has over the years created his own delicate sound – deeply rooted in Arabic classical and folk music yet infused with contemporary jazz sensibilities. His music is the real example of fusion – a troubadour of world music; Brahem’s extensive ca
    talogue on ECM Records is our Blue Tunes focus all this week.
