DuOud consists of two oud-playing Parisians who combine their North African heritage with the latest in Western technology.
Jean-Pierre Smadja is Tunisian by birth and trained as a jazz musician and Mehdi Haddab was born in Algiers and is a master of the classical oud.
The duo delivers an interpretation that is inspired by contemporary music – break beats, jazz grooves and metal guitar – but rooted in North African music. Thanks to Smadj’s technical expertise and Mehdi Haddab’s virtuoso performances, the winners of the 2003 BBC – Radio 3 World Music Awards will offer music that oscillates between groove and emotion.
