Karim Nagi (Egypt/Chicago) and Rami Gabriel (Lebanon/Chicago) create a dynamic and unique amalgam of traditional Arabic music and Chicago Blues. Authentic Arabic instruments like the Oud, Buzuq, Tublah and Riqq are used along with Guitar and Drum Set to create a sound that could have only been imagined in America. Karim & Rami express their tradition and identity through the compositions and improvisational excursions from their two traditions.
