Legend says the eleven ...

Legend says the eleven stringed oud was invented by Lamech, the sixth grandson of Adam. The legend tells that the grieving Lamech hung the body of his dead son from a tree...and that the first oud was inspired by the shape of his son's bleached skeleton. A beautiful sound from a tragic beginning indeed.

This week on Radio M two Chicago oud masters perform some of their musical magic.

Plus new music from Spain's indie rock sensation. Also, a cut from the From the Stage archives.
