Syrian virtuoso ‘ud player and composer Kenan Adnawi will lead a trio that includes highly acclaimed cellist Naseem Alatrash and the talented young qanun virtuoso Tony Barhoum. Adnawi's concerts are famous for their experimental rhythms and sounds that engage the audience in new musical experiences every time. Adnawi has accompanied Marcel Khalife and Al-Mayadeen Ensemble in Morocco, United Arab Emirates, Austria, Lebanon, and many other places around the globe. He has also played with the Qatar Philharmonic, under the direction of world renowned Maestro Lorin Maazel, for its inaugural concert in October 2008. He toured with the Qatar Philharmonic in 2009, performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, La Scala in Milan, and Teatro Massimo in Palermo, where he performed the Arabian Concerto composed by Marcel Khalife. In 2009, he won first place in the International Oud Competition in Beirut, Lebanon. He has since participated in major festivals around the world.
