Abdullah Chhadeh & Nara - 2005 - Seven Gates عبد الله شحادة ونارة – 2005 – أبواب الشام السبعة

Abdullah Chhadeh is a Syrian Qanun virtuoso from Damascus. Leader of the group Nara, composer, orchestral soloist and recitalist. The Qanun is an Arabic instrument that sounds as mystical and sonorous as the concert harp, as delicate as the virginal and as regal as the harpsicord. Chhadeh’s recordings and collaborations have included both solo performances and featured soloist work with Sinead O’ Connor, Jocelyn Pook, Natacha Atlas and David Arnold among others.

Abdullah Chhadeh عبد الله شحادة

Nara was formed in 2001, an ensemble combining Abdullah’s qanun with a variety of traditional and mainstream instruments such as the nay (Arabic end-blown flute),Syrian accordion and Middle Eastern and Western percussion such as the frame-drum, daf, darbuka, kit-drums and double bass. An ever evolving musical project based entirely on Abdullah’s original compositions. In the first few months of its existence Nara has produced startlingly enthusiastic reactions from audiences, particularly at WOMEX and at WOMAD festivals in the UK and Canary Islands.
