Wahid is a dialogue between Dimitris Mahlis on oud and Chris Wabich on frame drums, bringing genre-defying approaches to composition and improvisation. Both in his compositions and playing, Greek-born Mahlis skillfully draws from Greek, Persian, Carnatic, and Western jazz traditions; in his hands, the oud deftly transforms into a multi-dimensional stringed instrument echoing these traditions.  Three-time Grammy nominee Chris Wabich created the world’s first bass frame drum set specifically for Wahid.  His unique setup conveys an extraordinary undercurrent of rhythm and harmonic function allowing the duo to create new sonic potential. Together as Wahid, they create a sensitive language conveying the full-spectrum of human emotion and experience.
