I am sure many already know this artist well. I am more a fan of his brother Jamil, but I am not that happy about the 'Ud "in concert" and have rather "simpler" tastes. I enjoy more the occasional Ud taksim in a takht or the role of accompaniment to vocals better. Judge for yourself. Jamil did wonderful oud playing accompanying Selima Murad, but more on that later.

So, anyhow lets start with volume one. Munir Bashir...
