    Hey DT,

    I hope you don't mind me sharing some Turkish oud as well:





    I spent the first ten years of my life in the middle east and this music always reminds me of my youth.

    cool; of course not!

    for clarity's sake, neither afif taian nor the truly innovative, great rabiihya abou khalil
    play in the turkish tradition.
    rabih hails from lebanon/france, while afif is from syria.

    The music seems very similar to what you would hear in Arab countries.
    I am sure given the history there was a lot of give and take musically and otherwise.

    Loved the videos.

    Ah yes, of course sir. I should have been more clear. I actually thought about changing the 'turkish oud' part in my post last night as I put it in as a play of the thread title, but I left it in anyway.

    I love this, Hamza el Din:



    This the amazing Afghan master of the Rabob, Mohamed Omar. It isn't an Oud but I think the Rabob is a descendant of the Oud as it traveled and changed on it's way to India. One of the most beautiful sounding instruments I have ever heard:



    Some more Turkish Oud, Alper playing an Oud crafted in 1887. Check out the instruments in the back ground:



    Some more Mehmet Bitmez playing a Manol Oud crafted in 1895:



    Three Ouds:

    this popped up in my youtube recommended for you thing and reminded me of this thread, so btt for any new vids folks have hunted down.


    (after a google search I think the vid title means the oud was made by this dude: http://www.mustafacopcuoglu.com )

    Thank you EVERYBODY who contributed to this thus far. The sound of the oud IS amazing and deeply moving.

    I'd add Anouar Brahem (Turkish oudist), who has a few CDs out (sort of unclassifiable meld of Mid-Eastern w/ moody late Romantic classicism and ECM-type of not-jazz-but ... ; he's worked w/ Jan Garbarak for those of you familiar w/ Garbarak's style/metier). Check out his La Pas Du Chat Noir or Astrakhan Cafe. He's got some stuff on YouTube, but I'm not familiar w/ embedding, so I didn't.
