Oud duo Ghassan Alyoussif and Dina Abdelhamid will perform on Friday 27 December at Wekalet El-Ghouri Arts Center located in old Cairo.

Known by fans as the Arabian Yin and Yang of Oud, the duo will perform some of their known compositions and traditional pieces from Arabic musical heritage.

The two are widely known for their captivating joint performances; at times they play two separate ouds and in others instances they play simultaneously on the same instrument, with Dina playing with the left hand and Ghassan playing with the right.

Both musicians are graduates of Naseer Shamma’s Beit Al-Oud (The House of Oud) in Cairo.

They also run their own institution in New Cairo, the House of Music and Arts, where they teach oud to children and youths.
