Drummer and Egyptian tabla player (dumbek), George’s musical journey took him through Middle Eastern music, Jazz, music of the Arabian Gulf, the Balkans, and his niche and first love-Egyptian music of his native land.
Growing up as a drum kit player, George had a chance to learn several styles of music that did not necessarily use the Egyptian tabla which helped broaden his approach to composing tabla grooves.
As a teenage, George performed in international clubs around the Northwest during the 80s.In the 90’s he relocated to LA where to performed in international shows and was a studio session artist.
