SOUK at the Conservatory

5 McLallen St, Trumansburg, NY 14886

SOUK performs traditional Arabic and Turkish instrumental music, with focus on the scales and rhythms that define these traditions. Nikolai Ruskin plays Oud and Nay, with Dara Annissi and Jesse Koennecke on darbuka and riq. Souk was formed in October, 2010 by Nikolai Ruskin with fellow musicians who have been performing together for nearly twenty years. One of Souk’s main goals is to share the sound of the Middle East in a way that listeners from all walks of life might connect with.
