The International Oud Festival returns to Jerusalem with a rich and varied repertoire that combines Arabic music with world music from Andalusia, Armenia, Kurdistan and Israel

The festival celebrates 20 years, and the shows feature cross-border musical traditions and cultures from countries from North Africa, the Middle East and the Balkans, which enrich each other and hold fascinating interactions. As in every year, the festival will host international and Israeli artists, who create with love and passion for the ancient musical instruments and the authentic and traditional sounds.

Participants include: Omar Faruk Tekbilek and Brian Keane in an exciting opening performance, the Madrasa Ensemble, Ara Dinkijian and Borju Yildiz with a performance of Armenian songs, singer Ilana Elia in a new show “Love in Pleasure”, and the Divan Saez Ensemble in a show dedicated to Turkish-Sufi soul music.
