"Brilliant performance by Saba a true master of his art."
—The New York Times

"Technical Genius Shines in Saba's nay, flute, oud and violin performance, a true master of his craft." —The Chicago Tribune

“In his CD-Release at Joe's Pub [1/16/2010], Arabic music virtuoso Bassam Saba weaves together Lebanese and Arabic folk music with Turkish Gypsy styles and Russian motifs, playing oud, flutes, violin and buzuq… surprisingly funksome stuff.”
—Time Out New York
, January 2010

Led by the Lebanese-born Bassam Saba, a leading figure in Arabic music and member of the acclaimed Silk Road Ensemble, the group is known for enormous skill and passionate, electrifying performances.
