The Joseph Tawadros Trio – Live @ 505

“It is my truth. I probably express more than people know through my melodies and that’s the beauty of music – it can be secretive to the composer but mean something else to another.” – Joseph Tawadros


It’s not long now till The Joseph Tawadros Trio performs for the first time at Venue 505! This is set to be a magical night as Joseph Tawadros, James Tawadros and Matt McMahon perform tracks from Joseph’s latest Aria Award winning album ‘Concerto of the Great Sea’.


Joseph Tawadros never ceasing to amaze at just 26 Joseph has established himself as one of the world’s leading oud performers (Arabic lute) and composers. He continues to appear in concert halls worldwide dazzling audiences with his brilliant technique, his passionate musicianship and his joyous style of performance. Always willing to push the boundaries and challenge traditional musical forms and rhythms, his efforts have led him to many unique collaborations, and he has recorded 7 albums to date.


James Tawadros is a world class percussionist and Joseph’s younger brother. His prowess on the req (a tiny Egyptian tambourine) and bendir (frame drum) is equally astonishing. The rapport he enjoys with his big bro is nothing short of telepathic and is joy to see on stage.


Joining the brothers on stage will be distinguished pianist and Eastside’s own Matt McMahon. No stranger to the stage Matt can also be seen leading the Matt McMahon Trio and the Band of Five Names.

Save the date for this special night as it’s sure to be an unforgettable World musical experience.
