Firas Zreik (Palestine, 26) combines his deep understanding of the ancient Maqam tradition - the scale system in the Levantine, North African and the Mediterranean region - with elements of modern global musical styles absorbed throughout his musical development, creating a fresh modern authentic sound, via a dazzling technique with the Kanun at its core.
