His first album is "At The Heart of Two Worlds" available on Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and

His latest album "Breaking All The Rules" is a tour de force of original compositions and features not only fabulous oud playing and percussion, but also two amazing vocalists, bass, keyboards, violin, a Cuban horn section and even a didgeridoo!
