Peter Kfoury

Peter Kfoury has brought the concept of the American melting pot to life through his music. Of Lebanese descent, Peter immersed in his songs the influences of jazz, pop, blues and even funk along with his Middle Eastern/North African roots. At TEDxCharleston, Peter will play “Lucia” one of his original compositions that honors an Italian immigrant friend that lived to be 100 years old. Peter will perform on the oud, an instrument that is regarded as the grandfather of the guitar and that is still the principal instrument in many countries. In addition, TEDxChalreston will be the world premiere of his new music video Mussawat which honors women’s equality and equality in general. Featuring Jamaican American singer Audrey Martells, this song and video help us to see the beauty of the human experience.
