DuOuD (France/Tunisia/Algeria) + Be Suren Trio
This event has passed and sales are now closed
Jean-Pierre Smadja (AKA Smadj) and Mehdi Haddab (Speed Caravan) as DuOuD are the first band to mix the North African oud with electronic technology and they do it with such imaginative freedom that it sets them apart from their contemporaries. ‘Respectfully insolent’ of the oud tradition, this phenomenal duo experiments with classical Arab tunes, original compositions and the warmth of the acoustic instrument, alongside electronic break beats, jazz grooves and metal guitar.
Oxford Art Factory will be the first stop after their WOMADelaide shows as part of their 2019 Australian tour.
BE SUREN TRIO
Sydney-Istanbul based singer songwriter Be Suren tells stories about romantic and divine love and growing up between 2 cultures. Her lyrics are woven into a melodically rich flying carpet of fusion folk, transporting audiences from Turkish cities to Australian oceans and rainforests.
