One of the most important Arab musicians, performers and composers of his generation, Simon Shaheen dazzles listeners as he leaps deftly from traditional sounds to jazz and Western classical styles.
His soaring technique, melodic ingenuity and unparalleled grace have earned him international acclaim as a virtuoso on both the violin and the oud, a short-necked, pear-shaped lute played for centuries across the Mediterranean, the Middle East and Asia.
In addition to being a master player, the Palestinian artist is also a renowned composer and teacher of Arabic and Western music who has devoted himself to promoting Arabic music in the West. His work incorporates and reflects a time-honored legacy while exploring new frontiers and embracing many different styles in the process.
