Jamal Mohamed will present a concert of music from around the world, including Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. He will play authentic instruments from a variety of cultures, as well as electronics and instruments he has designed and built. Mohamed has been a featured artist at many international music events, having performed with Sting, Mark O’Connor, Giovanni Hidalgo, and other well-known artists. He is acknowledged as a master craftsman and builds many of his own instruments. In 2010 Toca Percussion introduced the “Jamal Doumbek,” a signature drum he designed with Toca. In 2018 Toca introduced five new “Jamal” signature drums, including riq (Arabic tambourine) and mazhars (Arabic frame drums).
These performances are part of Late Nights at the Dallas Musuem of Art.
