Tareq Jundi
طارق الجندي


Tareq Jundi was born in Amman, Jordan in 1983. He began to learn the oud at the age of eleven, when he joined the preparatory section of the Jordan Academy of Music. In the years that followed he took lessons with Omar Abbad, Omar Bashir, Sakher Hattar, Ahmed Al Khatib, Elia Khoury, Nasser Obaido, Charbel Rouhana and Abd al-Razzaq Tobasi. In 2006 he formed the Sharq ensemble with several other like-minded Jordanian musicians and the following year he was awarded a scholarship to complete his Bachelor's degree in music performance (cello) at the National Music Conservatory in Jordan. In 2011 he joined the Jordan Academy of Music as a part-time lecturer, teaching music theory and oud, and in two years later completed an MA in music education at the University of Jordan. Tareq has performed as a solo artist and member of various ensembles in Europe, the Middle East and China. He was ranked second in the international oud competition held at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik, Lebanon in 2009, and received a special prize from the Mugham Festival in Azerbaijan in 2013, the same year that his first solo oud CD 'Terhaal' was released.
