    The wasla is a particular expression of the musical suite, developed by different Arab traditions, like "Nuba" in North Africa and "Fasl" in Syria. Therefore the term refers to the specific Egyptian classical musical suite practiced between the last third of the nineteenth century until the 1940s. Nowadays, this period, the "Nahda era", is considered as the Golden Age, not only of this musical tradition, but also in the art of Egyptian oud solo. "Wasla" is a creation developed by Tarek Abdallah proposing to revive the golden age of the musical tradition through a personal approach to the Egyptian musical suite in terms of composition, interpretation and improvisation. The first suite is composed by Tarek Abdallah in mode Bayyati, the second in Rast and the third in Sikah.
