The young multi-instrumentalist Nidal Asa’ad was born in Palestine and grew up in a family of musicians. He is a percussionist, guitarist and oûd player. Since his childhood he played music with his twin and older brother, each of them playing more than one instrument. They traveled a lot, through Syria and various other countries. All this traveling has left impressions and inspirations in Nidal’s way of playing music. He became a member of the Oriental Opera Ensemble due to his very versatile percussion playing and his high sensitivity to adapt to other musicians and other styles of music.
He is also percussionist in Ali Shibly’s mandolin orchestra “SOL”, with whom he plays many concerts.
