Citizen of the world his fame continues to climb among the greatest, Hocine Benameur has happily passed the solos on Gibson and Fender to the haunting sounds of oud, a traditional oriental instrument that transports the public to other countries. A real virtuoso, the “Ibrahim du Oud”, Hocine Benameur has donned the costume of El Musafir, the traveler.
For several years, he collaborated as a sideman and studio musician with many internationally renowned artists in urban music, the world or in the international variety.
But Hocine Benameur is first and foremost a multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger and performer. On stage, Hocine Benameur is an invitation to travel, accompanied by his computer, Mashine sample and his Loop station.
His work contains a clever blend of electronic and oriental music, instrumental performance where modernity and traditional repertoires coexist.
