MUSIC: JOSEPH TAWADROS TRIO LIVE IN CONCERT
28 Oct 2017 | 7.00pm - 8.30pmBook Tickets
The buzz is still in the air from Joseph and James’ hugely successful first Casula concert. The
astounding music and hilarious banter had the audience spellbound one moment and laughing out loud
the next. So the Tawadros brothers are back due to popular demand – this time in trio format.
Joining Joseph for this concert are Matt McMahon, one of Australia’s finest jazz pianists and his
brilliant brother James Tawadros on Egyptian percussion. Expect a thrilling mix of middle eastern,
jazz and traditional sounds in all-original pieces, including music from the new album Live At
Abbey Road - which has received rave reviews.
Joseph is a triple ARIA award winning master of the oud – which is a Middle Eastern lute. He was
born in in Cairo in 1983, came to Sydney at 3 years old and is now based in London.
This year the brothers performed with the BBC Orchestra in Dubai, premiered Joseph’s Concerto for
Oud and Orchestra with Melbourne Symphony, recorded an astounding album at the legendary Abbey Road
studios in London.
Joseph has also been busy in the studio, having played on the Ali’s Wedding soundtrack. He is back
in Australia to perform in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Darwin before special concerts in East
Timor and China, then Ukraine and Poland later in the year.
Complementary pre-performance refreshments will be provided at 6.00pm.
“They are phenomenal musicians, able to improvise and play off each other as they develop fusion music that crosses between classical, bluegrass, folk and jazz. Never less than electrifying and always entertaining, given Joseph’s wild sense of humour and ability to laugh at many taboos, this was a sensational concert...” Performing Arts Hub, August 2017
“One of the most impressive musicians to emerge in Australia … with a dazzling technique dispensing hair-raising tempos… His writing displays a real depth of emotion …revelling in a zest for life and celebration.” – The Australian newspaper
