I am happy to let you know that the next Middle Eastern double bass workshop in Europe will be a part of BASS2012 Copenhagen – the European double bass convention, August 14-19, in Copenhagen. In this special week I will also perform a Middle Eastern double bass recital with the great Copenhagen based oud player, my friend Bilal Irshed.
This convention features so many excellent players and teachers, just take a look at the artists page on the convention’s website. I am looking forward to it very much.
Here’s a cool picture (click to view full size) from the last international (ISB) convention, from Mark Dresser’s unforgettable ‘Deep Tones for Peace” concert.
