About the Artists:
Playing since age seven, Kenan Adnawi is a Syrian oud virtuoso, who studied under Azerbaijani oud master, Askar Ali Akbar at the High Music Institute of Damascus in 2003. In 2009, he won first place in the International Oud Competition in Beirut. Adnawi is driven by a passion for creating new music and experimental rhythms and sounds by incorporating novel techniques, scales and innovating on ideas from other world music traditions. This interest in world music has led to wide-ranging collaborations with artists from around the world and different musical backgrounds. Adnawi has toured with Marcel Khalife and the Al-Mayadeen Ensemble in Austria, Lebanon, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates. He has also performed with the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Theater of Champs-Elysees in Paris, La Scala in Milan and Teatro Massimo in Palermo. He is familiar to Alwan audiences, previoulsy performing with Sonia M’Barek in 2013, a solo concert in 2014 and with the Alfaia Quartet in 2015. To listen to Kenan Adnawi, please click here.
