Nasser Makhoul At the Rhythm of His Wooden Music Instruments

His rich life experience led him to become an expert and researcher in chordophone and aero phone music instruments. His early beginnings are as fascinating.

When the 13-year-old boy was following every morning a shortcut through the woods, an encounter with a local shepherd changed his life. He didn’t want to go with the kids to school. The shortcut was a roman road built in a wonderful natural setting between his hometown Joun and Deir el Moukhalles or the Holy Savior Monastery. Nasser Makhoul was then enchanted by the sound of the Nay or flute that the almost solitary shepherd was playing on a hill. His seat was on a rock beside that shepherd amidst oak, pine and olive trees.
