Dhafer Youssef

Dhafer Youssef is without a doubt the face of the avant-garde sound of the ud. His playing is true spectacle, keeping the audience on the edges of their seats from the first minute. During the first edition of the Ud Festival in 2016, Youssef made an overwhelming impression on the audience at the Concertgebouw, as he and his quartet transformed the hall into a swinging whole.
