Syrian Oudist and composer, Mohannad Nasser, has emerged as an innovative and creative musician with years of experience in performing on the Middle East musical scenes and expertise in teaching oriental music.His Compositions has been described by audiences as “delicate, serene and magical”.
His profound desire to share his conception of music led him to elaborate his educational project, “Contemporary today, Heritage tomorrow”, which achieved his Master’s degree at the prestigious Berklee College of Music.At Berklee College, Mohannad performed the musical piece “Mediterranean Sundance” with the internationally renowned guitar player, Al Di Meola.
His musical vision is based on the Arabic traditional music with a strong flavor of the Oriental roots.
Mohannad’s journey with the Oud came from his rich period of studies at the Higher Institute of Music in Damascus, where he perfected his knowledge in traditional oriental music and explored the classical Western music.
During his career, he was able to expand the Oud abilities by adapting it to different musical genres, like the classical music, the jazz music, Brazilian music or the flamenco.
In 2015, Mohannad - as most of the Syrian artists - was facing a hard time and daily danger because of the conflict in Syria. He thus moved to Lebanon to become a music educator with several international organizations providing music classes to refugee children.This inspiring experience made him thrilled to encourage the next generation of musicians to find their voices.
In 2017, Mohannad released the first album of his group Oumi ensemble, “Imaginary Dance”, and started his solo project “L’Oud whispers”.
Mohannad received several prizes at international Oud competitions and he is performing his music all around the world.
