From a 2015 Songlines review of their date at Royal Albert Hall in London — “Headlining the evening were Egyptian duo Tarek Abdallah and Adel Shams el Din, whose intricate, masterful performance captivated a sold out audience… The pair performed tracks from their newest album Wasla, which was chosen as one of Songlines’ best albums of 2015. Tarek Abdallah is widely regarded as one of the world’s best players of the oud – a stringed, lute-like instrument hailing from the Middle East. He has a Master’s degree in Musicology from the University Lumière Lyon in France and runs regular oud workshops in various notable educational institutions around the world. He regularly collaborates with Adel Shams El Din, who excels at providing deft and dynamic accompaniment on the riq (a classical Arabic tambourine).”
