Tareq Abboushi is a Palestinian-American musician and composer.

He earned his B.M. in Jazz Piano from William Paterson University. However, he has been playing the buzuq, a long-necked lute, since 1997 – first in Ramallah, West Bank, and now in New York City.

Abboushi plays with many groups in the New York area and is the leader and composer of the Arabic/Jazz fusion quintet SHUSMO, which released its debut album One in 2005, and second album "Mumtastic" in 2011. In addition, he has given lectures on Arabic music at Columbia University, New York University, Juilliard School of Music, and the Museum of the City of New York.
