  • SMADJ from Istanbul and Paris to Australia.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Tunisian born, Parisian musician Jean-Pierre Smadja aka SMADJ who is currently on tour along the east coast of Australia performing with his signature Oud, both acoustic and electric.

    With it’s origins in the Middle East the Oud is considered a sacred instrument and described as the King of Instruments. Legend has it that the Oud was invented by Lamech, the sixth grandson of Adam from the pharaonic era stretching back over 5,000 years.

    Smadj grew up listening to Oriental, Brazilian, funk and folk music and started his musical career as a Jazz guitarist at age 15. His interest in the mechanics of making music lead him to pursue a degree in sound engineering resulting in a fruitful career as a recording and sound engineer for other famous musicians.

    Smadj’s discography includes 17 albums with his first in 1993.

    In 2000 he became recognised on an international scale for his signature blending of acoustic and electronic sounds on Equilibriste which ascended on the European World Music charts to 4th position.

    On this tour he will be performing songs from his current soon to be release album “Oud Solotronic”

    An authentic musical collaborator and Oud master, Smadj along with his musical kindred spirits in other world class musicians has transported the Oud to the 21st century.
