World-renowned percussionist Tom Teasley weaves a unique and captivating live world music score for the 1926 animated fairytale film. 

Inspired by the Middle Eastern aspects of The Adventures of Prince Achmed, Tom Teasley, a world renowned percussionist, creates an exciting live soundtrack for this magical 1926 film. The first animated feature length movie, The Adventures of Prince Achmed was created by German visionary Lotte Reiniger using a silhouette technique inspired by shadow puppetry. In the film, a wicked sorcerer tricks Prince Achmed into riding a magical flying horse, which he then uses to embark on many adventures. While travelling, Achmed falls in love with the beautiful Princess Peri Banu, and must defeat an army of demons to win her heart.


Teasley’s innovative world music score is based upon his collaborations with indigenous musicians in Bahrain, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, the West Bank and Jerusalem during his work as a Cultural Envoy for the U.S. State Department. The Washington Post described Teasley as “a multi-instrumental genius.”
