Nina Boutchakjian

solo, duo, trio and full band

Passionate about the acoustic Oud, although in recent years she bonded equally with the electric Oud. Nina came to music relatively late in life, only to discover that the music had always been there somewhere hidden, waiting to be heard. Although she is Lebanese, at 11 years old i moved to Sweden with my mother, escaping the war like so many others. At age 24 she decided to go to Egypt and she ended up staying 3 years perfecting her skills. Music has been her life and has led her from Egypt, to Spain, Greece and eventually Dubai. While she loves listening to jazz and Fairouz, her favorite style of playing are the simple, traditional songs, like Sayed Darwish. Beautiful music and gorgeous words. Not content to stick to the norm, Nina brings a funky edge to both traditional and popular Arabic music with her electric Oud. Her gentle, soothing voice greatly compliments her out-of-the-box style and its this unique combination of classic and eclectic that has an uncanny ability to mesmerize audiences .
