We get to hang at home with Simon Shaheen!  He performs live on the oud and shares a few live performances.  We also had an in-depth discussion about maqam and the history of Arabic Music.  Shaheen is one of the most significant Arab musicians, performers, and composers of his generation and his virtuosity extends to  Jazz and Western Classical styles.

Simon is performing in Brooklyn soon March 17, 2018 at Roulette.
