Asturias (Leyenda) on Oud

Asturias (Leyenda) of Isaac Albéniz on Oud by Wassim Njeim.

Asturias is a very famous flamenco piece which was originally composed for Piano then later transcribed for Guitar.

Here I play it based on Farid El Atrache’s version on Oud. Farid, who himself was and still is a source of inspiration for many Oud players, adapted Asturias to the Oud and made it famous in the Arab world back in the 50’s.
