I'm proud to announce the release of my Album "At The Heart of Two Worlds".


‚ÄčThe oud found me when I was a teenager.  As a Lebanese-American, I grew
up listening to Middle Eastern music but as a teen, rock & roll
ruled.  As the magnetic pull of heritage mixed with social upheaval and
the incredibly rich music scene of the late sixties, I was drawn to
bring the oud into the rock, blues and jazz scene that I had to come to
love.  "At The Heart of Two Worlds"
is the culmination of all these influences.  It is a true fusion that
reflects my experience and belief that all worlds have indeed, one
heart.  With melody, feeling and driving percussion I feel sure that
this music will take you on a journey that will elevate all
cultures.....and all hearts.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Since the late 60's Peter has played professionally in venues from Boston to New York to St. Louis to Los Angeles.   He has played with jazz greats such as Rashaan Roland Kirk and with Middle Eastern greats such as John Berberian and George Mgrdichian.    His true joy is composing and performing original tunes that fuse cultural and musical influences.
