Abozekry is considered one of the best Oud players nowadays. Starting his music journey by the age of 11, he refined his natural talent under the tutelage of the Iraqi oud master Naseer Shamma. Abozkery was awarded his diploma with highest honors, finishing as a soloist and licensed instructor. At 15 years of age, he was the youngest licensed oud educator in the Arab World.
He went on in 2009 to win first place in the International Oud Competition held in Damascus Syria, Which exposed his virtuosity and deep musicality to the recognition of the Arab World.
Leaving Egypt to pursue higher studies, in France he completed his degree of Musicology, which he earned from the University of Lyon. During this period, along with immersing himself in the theory and tradition of Western music, the cultural diversity of France exposed Abozekry to stretches of musical styles, from Latin to Indian and Tzigane.
