Joseph Tawadros AM is a multi- award-winning player of the Oud, a Middle Eastern lute. He is also a brilliant composer, improviser and storyteller, who keeps the audience entertained as much with banter as with his engaging music. Tawadros’s virtuoso technique and depth of musicianship have brought him into contact with the worlds of jazz, classical and world traditions and drawing form these he creates original music that transcends labels and shatters borders.
Joseph’s music has brought middle-eastern, classical and contemporary jazz together seamlessly and he is considered by peers and music critics to be a truly original performer and an innovative composer. He shares an almost telepathic rapport with his band members: brother James, a percussionist, bassist Karl Dunnicliff and jazz pianist Matt McMahon, leading to moments of joyous spontaneous invention. These musicians are each leaders in their own field, in high demand for performances and recordings, yet always happiest when they can work with Joseph.
On stage Joseph is an articulate story-teller with a quick wit and astute observations. His charismatic style and ad-lib chats brings another dimension to the performance. Group bookings available.
