With his top-flight ensemble, oud virtuoso Attab Haddad blends Andalusian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern sounds with contemporary jazz approaches to create story-like compositions with the breadth of the Sahara and the intricacy of the Alhambra Palace.
In 2008 he founded the Attab Haddad Quintet which plays his own compositions drawing on Middle Eastern music, Flamenco, Jazz and contemporary composed music creating a sound that is unique to the band. The Quintet has been very well received and has appeared live on BBC Radio as well as playing at some of London’s finest venues including Cadogan Hall and The Forge. They have performed at The London Jazz Festival in both 2011 and 2012. They released their first CD ‘Days Distinctive’ in January 2012 on Weave Records to critical acclaim.
