Biography:

Mohamed Abozekry, born in Cairo in 1991, took up the oud at the age of eleven. For four years he studied with the great Iraqi master Naseer Shamma at the Arab Oud House in Cairo. In 2007, he graduated as a soloist and teacher at the age of fifteen. He was called by then the youngest oud teacher in the Arab world. In 2009, he was awarded first prize at the International Oud Competition in Damascus (Syria). He moved to France at the age of eighteen, settling in Lyon to study musicology at the University there. In no time he was giving oud classes and beginning to perform in concert. His own career started in France, while touring with his band through different continents. In addition to his multiple collaborations with projects in France or abroad. Abozekry’s amazing ability to assimilate new musical languages enables him to associate with artists from the worlds of jazz and traditional music, while also working on his own compositions. He released four albums distributed overseas.
