There is an Arabic instrument called an OUD. It is a string instrument. Mostly men play. There are a few women in the world that play. We went to an Oud Shop the other day with Charlie. We met Khalid. He was very quiet and probably thought we were full of it....
I encouraged the girls to ask him questions. Charlie is quiet and shy but she asked! Good questions too!
Here is Khalid playing his Oud. See how fast his left hand is going?
The girls were really fascinated. Very excited.
$400 later, Amu has her own. This was last Tuesday. She can do all the homework he gave her! Tomorrow, Saturday, Charlie and Amal start their classes! I get to sit with them. I think I will work on my hexagon quilt! Like START putting them together!
