O’s Notes: Rabih is a musical jazz experimentalist and composer who has transitioned from flute to oud. He teams up with Ricardo Ribiero (vocals) who brings the Portuguese element to the mix. Luciano Biondini plays accordion with Michael Godard (b) and Jarrod Cagwin (d) rounding out the band. The music has an Eastern European feel owing to Rabih’s childhood in Lebanon. It is folksy, world jazz if that’s your ticket.


Publicist: Allegro
