Khaled Kurbeh and Raman Khalaf


The music of the Syrian duo Khaled Kurbeh (piano & synthesisers) and Raman Khalaf (oud) shifts between experimental electronic music, Middle Eastern instrumentation and downbeat jazz. With immersive compositions and content they have created a performance that is both astute and inventive, a soundtrack to the 21st century. Together with an ensemble of Berlin-based musicians, they are working on their forthcoming EP in 2017. The project has been commissioned by Shubbak, London’s largest biennial festival of contemporary Arab culture.

They will be joined by Louai Alhenawi, a Syrian musician and composer that specialises in Ney (Arabic flute) and Arabic percussion (dabuka, daff and riqq). Graduate and teacher at the eminent Damascus Conservatoire he has also held the prestigious role of Ney soloist in the Syrian National Orchestra Symphony and the National Arabic Orchestra.
