The Israeli Dudu Tassa was 13 years old when he released his first album, Loving the Songs, in 1990. He was seen as a prodigy and released a series of records, though he only made an impact in the West with his 2009 album In the End You Get Used to Everything, which featured Radiohead's guitarist Jonny Greenwood. Dudu had to wait two years for the real miracle, however, when he found the music recordings of his grandfather and his great uncle in a chest.
Daoud and Saleh Al-Kuwaiti were two of the most popular creators of modern Iraqi music from the first half of the 20th century, and stars of the Arab musical world such as Umm Kulthum and Mohamed Abdel Wahab sought them out for collaboration. The duo then relocated to Israel after the outbreak of the first Arab-Israeli War, collecting new followers by performing as soloists in the Israel Radio Arab orchestra and becoming one of the few acts to be acclaimed by both Arab and Jewish listeners alike.... The guitarist and singer Dudu Tassa then reworked their songs in his own rock-based style, paying a tribute to his ancestors with the albums Dudu Tassa and the Kuwaitis in 2011, Ala Shawati in 2015 and El Hajar in 2019, which featured a unique mix of classic Arab songs, progressive 'Iraq 'n' roll' and electronic music. Now, Tassa arrives in Hungary to display the essence of those three albums and captivate the Müpa Budapest audience, just as he has done in concert halls across the Middle East and Far West.
