Featuring Samira with Greta Kelly

Featuring Samira with Greta Kelly

Feel the heat of summer approaching? A penchant for the exotic?

Celebrated vocalist Samira invites you to her Australian premiere at Chez Nous on Chevron. Samira and her band, Ostoorah (meaning ‘legend’), present Arabic classical, folk and original songs from Lebanon, Iraq, Palestine and Egypt. Ostoorah’s virtuosic ud (fretless lute), bell-like santur (Persian hammered dulcimer), soulful shah kaman (Persian spike-fiddle), intricate riq (Arabic tambourine) are each perfectly paired with Samira’s rich, passionate and nuanced voice. Spice up your night and join these musicians from Lebanon, Iran and Australia for a musical carpet ride. Raqs sharki and dabke dancers … now’s your time!

About the artist

Ostoorah is a five-piece ensemble of Lebanese, Iranian and Australian musicians. The sung poetry of Samira tells tales of love, separation and joy from across the Middle East, accompanied by Michael Taylor on ud, Masoud Kamgarpour on Persian santur, Greta Kelly on shah kaman and Tamara Taylor on riq.
