Marcel Khalifé (Arabic: مرسيل خليفة
) was born in 1950 in Amchit, Mount-Lebanon. He studied the oud
(the Arabic lute) at the Beirut National conservatory. His music works around the classical Arabic oud but also includes jazz piano and many other influences. His playing techniques expand far outside those of classical oud playing, however, and he is attributed for having greatly expanded the horizons of this traditional Arabic instrument.
