WHO IS THE MASTER?

 
 
Adib Samaan was born in Cairo, Egypt in 1957. His study of the Oud started when his older brother gave him an Oud at the age of twelve. After hededicated himself to the study of the Oud and after one year, his talent was evident. He also studies the Violin and Classical Guitar.

While studying at Ain Shams University in Egypt, Adib entered into an Oud contest in his first year of study. He was awarded first place out of the many participants. In a contest held for amateur Oudist from around the word, he was awarded second place. What sets Adib apart from many Oudist is his ability in Takassim. He has been compared to such masters as Farid el-Atrache, Mohammed Abdel Wahab, Riad el-Sunbati, and Mohammed el-Qasabji . He has also played in the Egyptian Orchestra under the direction of the renowned Salim Sehab.

Today Adib has over thirty years of experience as a professional Oudist. He is currently visiting Egypt right now, but when in the U.S., he is in the Philadelphia area..
