Dhafer Youssef and E.S.T.'s Magnus Öström

Tunisian singer and oud virtuoso Dhafer Youssef in concert. Plus drummer Magnus Ostrom on the tracks that inspired E.S.T., one of the most influential jazz groups of the 1990s.

Julian Joseph presents a concert from Dhafer Youssef, an acclaimed singer and virtuoso oud player who draws on his Tunisian heritage, blending Arabic harmonies, wiry melodies and propulsive grooves.

Plus Magnus Öström, drummer with the hugely influential Esbjörn Svensson Trio (E.S.T.), reveals some of the tracks that inspired the group - including a piece by Chopin that Esbjörn Svensson's mother used to play to him as a child.

Produced by Dominic Tyerman for Somethin' Else.
