MAHMOUD CHOUKI & OSCAR ROSSIGNOLI

November 21, 2021 @ 8:00 pm

Mahmoud “Mood” Chouki (Morocco, 1984) is a master guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and composer currently living and working in New Orleans. His art draws together music from several different international contexts to explore how music may speak across cultural divides. His own compositions incorporate musical influences from across the globe, ranging from European classical, Andalusian from Southern Spain, Levantine music from the Middle East, Maghrebian music from North Africa, Latin American music, and Jazz from the United States. Integrating sounds and rhythms from many different cultures, Chouki combines classical guitar with instruments such as the loutar, a traditional instrument of the Middle Atlas region of Morocco; the sintir, a Sub-Saharan instrument from the Sahel region (Mali); the oud, an oriental lute; the Algerian mandole, a steel-string fretted instrument resembling an elongated mandolin; the Bağlama saz, a Turkish long necked bowl-lute; the banjo, and a variety of percussion instruments.

Oscar Rossignoli, a native of Honduras, is an accomplished pianist and composer in both jazz and classical music. He began studying classical music when he was six years old and discovered jazz in high school, when immediately began writing and performing his own compositions. Upon enrolling at the University of New Orleans (UNO) music department, Rossignoli became an in-demand player in New Orleans, performing with Jason Marsalis, Bill Summers, Christian Scott, James Singleton, Brian Seeger, Brad Walker and others. He was named the 2015-16 ASCAP Louis Armstrong Scholar at UNO by the New York-based ASCAP Foundation. Oscar was also recognized as a finalist for the Ellis Marsalis International Jazz Piano Summer 2018 Competition held in West Virginia. The Ellis Marsalis International Jazz Piano Competition is meant to be the most comprehensive, challenging, and in-depth jazz piano competition in the world.
