VOICED: School keeps Arab musical tradition alive

It looks like a lute, but has a sound synonymous with the Arab world. For thousands of years the oud has maintained a vital place in Middle East culture. And that legacy looks set to continue thanks to a centre in Cairo founded by an Iraqi musician, dedicated to the study of the ancient string instrument. Now boasting an international reputation, the Oud House draws students from around the world. Cairo Egypt (Footage by AFP/Getty Images)
