​Mohamad Zatari has started his artistic career in Syria, as an oud performer, where he mastered the classical Levantine style as well as Egyptian, Iraqi and Turkish styles, guided by local masters.

Later on after moving to Europe he has developed his composition skills, both in the Arabic Music System and in European Classical Music. Mohamad is currently focused in growing his knowledge in studying the Western Classical and its influences and mutual inspirations on the Arabic Music systems.
 

“Quieter than Silence” for Mohamad is in particular an opportunity to present oud as a mighty instrument to connect in his style the  eastern and western musical cultures.
