Festival of Arabic Music & Arts presents Charbel Rouhana
Lebanese composer, singer and musician, Charbel Rouhana is one of the few masters who shaped the Arab lute (Oud) and its techniques. In 1990, he won the first prize of the Hirayama Competition in Japan for Best Composition entitled «Hymn of Peace». In the year 2000, he won the “Murex d’Or” as the Musician of the year. Rouhana has composed various compositions for the famous dance group “Caracalla” and has also accompanied the legendary Fairuz, Majida El Roumi, Julia Boutros, and Hariprasad Chaurasia in numerous performances.
Charbel Rouhana established a new method in playing the oud. This method was published in seven volumes and was adopted by the National Conservatory of Music in Lebanon and the Faculty of Music in the Holy Spirit University, where he has been teaching since 1986.
The Canadian Arabic Orchestra will be accompanying Rouhana for this show/program in Toronto and Montreal.
