Description

*October 6, 2013 from 1:00pm-4:00pm: John Bilezikjian – America’s Oud Virtuoso *

Perhaps the most prominent Oudist of his generation, Mr. Bilezikjian is a master of an instrument whose 11-stringed, fretless design dates back to ancient Persia, more than 2,000 years ago. Through more than half a century of playing, as both a folk musician and on the concert stage, America’s Oud virtuoso keeps oud traditions fresh and audiences enthralled. Join him at the Maloof for an afternoon of both joy and discovery.

*October 27, 2013 from 1:00pm-4:00pm: Amadou & Ryoji – African Kora and Classical Guitar Duo *

The duo performs in a unique blend of African and classical styles. Amadou hails from Senegal, Africa, one of a long line of kora masters. Ryoji, from Japan, pairs with him on guitar for a dynamic and seldom heard sound you won’t soon forget.

_Please note:

Docent tours begin at 1:00pm. The concerts begin at 2:00pm and the reception with hors d’oeuvres follows at 3:00pm._
