Bio: Throughout his career, Palestinian \'ud player, bandleader and composer
Issa Boulos has been exploring various musical styles from diverse musical traditions. All the sounds that he heard, experienced and internalized eventually became his own and were fused into a unique compositional and performance style. The performance and composition projects that he carried out in the Chicago area and Palestine include works for plays, dance groups, and ensembles featuring world-class musicians. His works have been performed in international and local festivals. His latest composition `Hallaj, is a series of composed Sufi poems penetrating the philosophy and tragic ending of Abu al-mughith al-`Husayn Ibn Mansur al-`hallaj. The work has generated excellent reviews and acquired wide acknowledgment. Issa is also an active performer featured in many recordings including The Jazz Ensemble of Brad Williams, and in the Guitars of Spain\'s most recent CD, Ida y Vuelta. He is the cofounder of Sama Music, bandleader of al-Sharq Ensemble, the Issa Boulos Ensemble and an adjunct faculty member at Columbia College. Issa also teaches \'ud and Middle Eastern music courses at the Old Town School of Folk Music and researches various aspects of Middle Eastern music.
