Music certainly resonates powerfully in Naser. The Jordan-born oud and percussion virtuoso has graced US stages for six decades, performing with stars of the Middle East, famous rockers and his own band. His latest shows are suitably varied. On 20 May, he makes his first appearance in the Arabian Gulf, as part of the Emirates NBD Classics concert series at Ductac. That largely acoustic show will be a change of pace, as last week he was touring with US punk legends The Violent Femmes, including at San Francisco’s fabled Fillmore Theatre.
