Peter Kfoury is a Lebanese-American who grew up listening to Middle Eastern music. While in his teens he started playing the oud, the direct ancestor of the lute and the principle instrument in all of the countries and cultures of the Middle East. Over time, he has played not only the traditional Arabic music, but has used all of the influences of the American melting pot to develop a unique style that fuses Middle Eastern with jazz, pop and even funk! He presents a varied program with beautiful songs, original material and classics in a melodic and percussive style. His latest album is "At The Heart of Two Worlds" available on Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and cdbaby.com
