I've been listening to the Oud for a while.
It is a stringed instrument of Arabic origin, but it was brought to Spain during the Moorish periods.
And once in Spain, the Spanish style of Flamenco, well-known for the guitar, was applied to the Oud.
I've heard many Oud players, but I have never been super pulled in, until I heard this one arrangement from Saad Mahmood. It Is FRICKIN AWESOME!!
Is this your groove?
