Wahid performs at noon concert
Students packed the music department’s recital hall to see the duo Wahid perform original songs.
Artists Dimitris Mahlis and Chris Wabich who comprise the duo Wahid, performed an original five piece set for students, faculty, and the public.
Wahid, which means “one” in Arabic, have been performing together for 15 years, and said they believe it’s a match made in heaven.
“This really works for us,” said Chris Wabich, who is known for his versatile and original voice.
They duo recently returned from a 13 date tour across the country and are in the process of making their fourth album.
The influence behind their music stems from their upbringing.
“I used to listen to Greek music all the time in my house,” said Dimitris Mahlis, who is a multi-instrumentalist and composer who has trained in both western and eastern musical styles. Their sound is a mixture of Greek, Armenian, and Turkish folk music with a modern twist.
