Clockshop presents its second year of Hear Sunday, a creative music program curated in collaboration with Yvette Holzwarth. Monthly concerts feature diverse musical styles performed in an intimate setting. Beer and wine are available for purchase. This month, Wahid returns to Clockshop.

Wahid is a musical dialogue between Chris Wabich on frame drums and Dimitris Mahlis on oud, approaching composition and improvisation in a daring, genre-defying way. Both in his compositions and playing, Greek-born Mahlis skillfully draws from Greek, Persian, Carnatic, and Western jazz traditions; in his hands, the oud deftly transforms into a multi-dimensional stringed instrument echoing these traditions. Three-time Grammy nominee, Chris Wabich, created the world’s first bass frame drum set specifically for Wahid. His unique setup conveys an extraordinary undercurrent of rhythm and bass harmonic function allowing the duo to create new sonic potential. Together as Wahid, they create a sensitive language conveying the full-spectrum of human emotion and experience.
