Enthralling audiences with his brilliant improvisations and mastery of both the oud and violin, Simon Shaheen is recognized as one of the great ambassadors of music from the Arab world. His latest project, Zafir, renews a relationship that began more than a thousand years ago. Zafir reveals the commonalities of music born in the cultural centers of Iraq and Syria, carried across the waters of the Mediterranean, blended with elements of Spanish music, and brought back across the sea to North Africa where it flourished in the cities of Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia.

Shaheen’s music seemed always to be reaching into history to discover the meaning of the present—and the beauty it found there was striking.”
