Latest News about luthier Ibrahim Sukar





2 days back I found Mr. Ibrahim sukrar's phone number and texted him to ask about his business.

He said after he lost his workshop in the crisis there in Syria he established a new workshop and started oud production. all went fine until last week when radical religious groups that forbid music forced him to close his new workshop.

He is thinking of shifting his work to yet another place in syria or leaving the country all together. "these foreign groups want us out of our country" he said.

I told him many oud players ask about him and his ouds and wish him all the best. He said 27 years of making ouds taught him that anyone with taste for music is against war and blood.
he wished peace for everyone and asked god to help him and other syrians.




very sad.

"Religious" groups who want to forbid music! This is the most stupid (and tragic) thing I hear since long time.
Poor Sukar, and poor Syria!
Thank you very much for the news!

This is very sad to hear. Some very beautiful words spoken by mr. Sukar though.

I wish him and his family all the best and hope that he can soon continue his fantastic work making beautiful Ouds.

Hasan, do you know where he had his last workshop? was in Aleppo, or somewhere else in Syria?

Great news that Mr. Ibrahim Sukar has open a new workshop, sad that these groups shut his shop. i wish him and his family all the best and hope he gets a safe new home to continue his production of beautiful ouds. I am the proud owner of a sukar Model 213 and fall in love with it more every day.
