Palestinian oud player Simon Shaheen and Flamenco guitarist Gerardo Nunez perform in the WNYC studio on this edition of New Sounds. Oud master Simon Shaheen (he’s also a violinist) is one of the most important Arab musicians and composers of his generation. He's also a teacher who has done a great deal to foster Arabic music in the West. Gerardo Núñez, known for his cross-cultural collaborations, is both a guitar virtuoso and a highly respected flamenco innovator. He is one of the best Flamenco guitarists in the world today, equally comfortable with playing deeply emotional traditional Flamenco at an amazing speed as he is venturing into jazz, Latin music, and other genres. Speaking of Flamenco, New York's annual Flamenco Festival gets underway on February 3.
