Charbel Rouhana was drawn to the oud because it reflected the oriental ambience of his beloved homeland. The oud {a short-necked, half pear-shaped, plucked, instrument} is a direct ancestor of the European lute and the most popular string instrument in Middle Eastern music. Born in Amchit, Lebanon in 1965, Charbel earned a Diploma in oud performance and a MA in musicology. Author of eight books describing a next style, technique and method of playing the oud, and a teacher at USEK {The Holy-Spirit University} and at Lebanon’s National Conservatory of Music.
