There was a time when the members of Oumi Ensemble were scattered between New York, Damascus and Beirut. Nobuko (flute) and Mohannad (oud) were trying to run rehearsals over skype, but that of course didn’t work. So Nobuko wrote ‘Imaginary Dance’ in hopes that Oumi would someday play together again. Here they are today, in The Citadel Studios, performing together the enchanting tune that blends their different cultures and musical backgrounds in one graceful dream-like journey.

Mohannad Nasser – Oud
