As a multi-instrumentalist artist, we see that you are keen on lute and cumbush recently. Any specific reason for this?
I have noticed that the two rich instruments of our culture have been stuck in alehouse and fasil suites.
The lute, in particular, has been underdeveloped and overshadowed by the oud. So, it could not gain favor as an instrument. That was what motivated me to work on it. I devised my own temperament, combining the lute with flamenco, classical music, jazz, ethic music, and unearthing the instrument’s fineness. I composed a symphonic piece solely by using the lute and the cumbush just to give them back the credit they deserve. Harem’de Bir Gece is a significant piece that intends to reveal the well-hidden richness of these instruments.
