Oudyano is a collaboration between Minneapolis-based pianist, Steven Hobert (FireFlyForest, Steven Hobert Quartet, Kalispell) and oudist, Issam Rafea, a virtuoso Syrian musician now residing in the U.S. (2010 "Best Composer Award" Dubai International Film Festival, principal conductor Syrian National Orchestra for Arabic Music, a collaboration with Gorillaz, and numerous other ensembles and international performances.)

Their performances are almost entirely improvised and blend the harmonies of jazz with classical Arabic modes.

In their own words: Oudyano joins hearts to create music that sensitively peers inward, boldly prays outward; crawling with curiosity, then leaping into clouds. Arabic classical tradition meets American jazz & roots to delight audiences through the world peace enacted by their embrace. After the first notes these men ever played together, they both cried out with joy.
