Mustafa Said

Mustafa Said is an Egyptian singer, musicologist, composer and a virtuoso Oud player. He currently lives in Beirut and is one of the few young talents to devote his career to the renaissance of the classical Arabic repertoire. Mustafa Said is currently the Director of the Arab Music Archiving and Research enterprise (AMAR) in Lebanon and was a former professor at the House of Oud in Cairo as well as an instructor in musicology at the Higher Institute of Music of the Antonin University in Lebanon. His approach to music steams from the already existent traditions in the eastern Mediterranean region namely on that of the golden age of Abbasid music, and that of the second half of the 19th century.  Inspired by the oriental traditional heritage, the compositions and forms of interpretation of Mustafa Said offer a very contemporary approach and place great emphasis on the instrumental and vocal improvisation (Taqsim).
