Sinan Samanli is an oud player and composer trained at the Mimar Sinan State Conservatorium in Istanbul and at the Fine Arts University of Graz. He regularly performs with the oud over a wide musical spectrum ranging from classical ottoman makam music to contemporary classical music. 

The oud is a versatile instrument with a rhythmic as well as vocal quality and is capable of playing both accompanimental and solistic roles in an ensemble. Learning to play the oud can broaden one’s horizons greatly as it is an integral part of many musical traditions from Madagascar to Greece, from Indonesia to Marocco. It is the precursor of the European guitar and is similar to it in many ways, however guitarists doubling on the oud must learn making fundamental adjustments in their playing technique and musical approach early on if they wish to get the most of what the oud offers.
