Hamza El Din (July 10, 1929-May 22, 2006) was an Egyptian composer, oud player, tar player, and vocalist. Performing on the oud (the Arabian short-necked lute) and the tar (the ancient single-skinned frame drum of the upper Nile), along with his gentle voice and original compositions, Hamza combines the subtleties of Arabic music with the indigenous music of his native Nubia. He has single-handedly forged a new music, essentially a Nubian/Arabic fusion, but one in line with both traditions and informed by Western conservatory training. His music has captured the interest of listeners worldwide. Here's the debut session from 1964 featuring eight songs.
