L’Oud whispers reflects our daily contradiction as musicians as we try to make the sound of our music louder than the sound of war. The project features a branch of compositions written for acoustic oud and oriental percussion composed by Syrian Oud virtuoso Mohannad Nasser and accompanied by Ramy al-Jundi (riqq, daf, darbuka, cajon). The compositions have been written in Lebanon and reflect the journey of the composer between Damascus and Beirut while looking for relative safety. L’Oud whispers is an attempt to translate that unending contradiction of war and peace, love and hate, loud and whispers into original compositions. To prove again that every musician facing the war’s noise is a loud whisper.
