Wasla is the name of a particular expression of the musical suite developed by different Arab traditions such as the nuba in North Africa and fasl in Syria. Wasla is a creation developed by Tarek Abdallah proposing to revive the golden age of this musical tradition through a personal approach to the Egyptian musical suite in terms of composition, interpretation and improvisation. Tarek is accompanied by the Egyptian percussionist Adel Shams el Din on the classical Arab tambourine known as riqq. Born in Alexandria in 1975, Tarek Abdallah is a composer and interpreter who draws his inspiration from the golden age of Egyptian art of solo oud (1910-1930) - which is also the main focus of his musicology research work at the University of Lyon. He devotes much of his time to broadcasting knowledge of the Arab lute through courses, master classes and workshops, as well as numerous musical creations with various artists.
