Arab countries of the Gulf are a source of great music. Their lyrical and musical traditions are rich, and well loved by many Arabs. The urban songs of the peninsula and islands speak of love, joy, social issues and spirituality. The featured instrument is the OUD. It is generally accompanied by complex beats which find their origins in Arabic, African and Indian rythmic traditions.
NASER MUSA (http://www.nasermusa.com/) is a Palestinian from Jordan who has mastered the Khaliji repertoire as a singer and an oudist. He has recently released a full length CD called Khaliji with master drummer Suhail Kaspar. He lives in Los Angeles as a full-time performer of Khaliji, Dabka, Tarab and Raqs Sharqi songs.
