Bahaa Almansour, Oud

Bahaa plays “oud” (short-necked lute), a stringed instrument. The oud is a very old instrument, a precursor of the lute. Its origin probably lies in the Arabian/Persian region. In the interview he tells more about himself, his music and his thoughts about the ONE WORLD. A number of short audio examples of how Bahaa Almansour plays his instrument are available at the right. You can also download these and use them as samples for composing a song for the song contest. If you have used a sample from the website for your song then you must state this when submitting your entry.

Important: You may only use the samples exclusively for songs with which you participate in the Song Contest "Dein Song für EINE WELT!" (Your song for ONE WORLD). If your song meets the entry criteria, it will be published on our website, on Soundcloud and also on YouTube if you submit a video. If you wish to continue using your song containing these samples, it is important that you always cite the name of the artist who provided the sample used. If for example you use the sample „Oud 70bpm A“ by Bahaa Almansour, please write “Using the sample „Oud 70bpm A“ by Bahaa Almansour”.

Can you tell us something about your musical career?
I studied music in a formal sense in Syria and then worked as a music teacher in a primary school.

What do you think about/how are you involved with the topics of “sustainable development” and “one world”?
Arabian music comes to mind when I think of ONE WORLD, it is an important component of international music.

Do you feel that music can change the world? If yes, how?
I feel music is the only way though which we can change so many things .Because music is the language everyone understands. With music we don’t have to learn other languages of the world or differente countries.
