The Rahim AlHaj Trio features 2-time Grammy nominee, National Endowment for The Arts National Heritage Fellow and Smithsonian Folkways Recordings artist Iraqi oud virtuoso and composer Rahim AlHaj joined by Iranian santour maestro Sourena Sefati and world percussion master Javier Saume Mazzei. The trio perform AlHaj’s intricate compositions. Rahim’s music delicately combines traditional Iraqi maqams with contemporary styling and influence. His compositions evoke the experience of exile from his homeland and of new beginnings in his adopted country. His pieces establish new concepts without altering the foundation of the traditional “Iraqi School of Oud.”
