Rohana Overwater Ensemble

The Rohana Overwater Ensemble is the fruit of the musical friendship between the Palestinian ud player Nizar Rohana and Dutch bassist Tony Overwater. Together they selected three prominent musicians from the Arab world and the Netherlands: clarinet player Maarten Ornstein; Tunisian violinist and viola d’amore player Jasser Haj Youssef and the Jordanian percussionist Nasser Salameh. Led by Tony and Nizar, each member of the ensemble contributes some of his own compositions, while jointly they strive for the creation of new music with an authentic sound.
