For the first time in the Netherlands, national and international talents who play the oud, the oldest Arabic string instrument, can apply for the Ud Concours 2024.

If you are between 16 and 30 years old and want to compete for the Saïd Chraibi Prize, an encouragement award for new talent, sign up for the first oud competition in the Netherlands.

You will be judged by a panel of experienced oud masters. They will decide who wins the Saïd Chraibi Prize, named after the legendary Moroccan oud player. The competition will take place on the weekend of November 22-24, 2024, at MAQAM, the cultural center of  Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra and Meervaart.
