FESTIVAL IN THE DESERT [LIVE]

Throwing an enormous Woodstock-style music festival in the middle of the Sahara desert--isn't exactly easy. Held during the last three years in the shifting sands of northern Mali, the Festival in the Desert has brought together a mix of desert nomads and pop stars to play sublimely enchanting music in some of the harshest but most starkly beautiful conditions imaginable. Luckily for us, the 2003 Festival produced this impressive and varied CD, mixing together tracks from Malian superstars like Oumou Sangare and Ali Farka Toure with lesser knowns like the Mauritanian singer Aicha Bint Chinghaly and the desert nomads Tinariwen, who a few years ago traded their rifles in for electric guitars when the civil war in northern Mali abated. The biggest name here, of course, is Robert Plant, who turns in a wailing medley of old blues tunes. But Led Zeppelin-heads who buy the CD just for him--particularly those drawn to the Middle-Eastern strains of Plant's music from "Kashmir" through his recent collaborations with Jimmy Page--are in for quite a pleasant surprise when they hear the rest of the disc. What comes across the most, despite the star power present, is the energy of the live performances in such an extraordinary setting, making the Navajo rock band Blackfire, the gorgeous duet between Italian pianist Ludovico Einaudi and the Malian kora player Ballake Sissoko, the otherworldly collaboration between French rappers Kwal and the Touareg (desert nomad) guitarist and singer Foy-Foy, and the French sisters Lo'Jo's duet with Malian guitarist Django all sound like natural pairings, unfolding together under the Saharan sky. --Ezra Gale

The Network Anthologies 2: Rêves d' oasis , Desert Blues 2

The Network Anthologies 1: Ambiances du Sahara ? Desert Blues 1 Credits to Agaruda
"Bahr bela ma", ocean without water, was the name by which Arab camel drivers knew the Sahara, the world’s largest desert. They travelled that ocean by camel, the ships of the desert, as we say in English, or, as the French call their caravans, le train de sable. In this way, people, goods and ideas traverse the endless expanses of the desert with its remote and barely accessible places, where conditions are harsh and landscape is reduced to a minimum of forms. Mile after mile of dunes, their outlines as sharp as though they had been carved by a scalpel, their flanks ornamented by strange patterns redolent of abstract painting. The beauty of the desert is slow to reveal itself, but anyone who has ever succumbed to it can never forget. Its silence invokes a sense of existential solitude, but listen carefully, and you will hear its sounds like the lapping of waves, the magical opera of the whispering, piping wind, the calls of animals, the humming of insects, the scraping of hooves, the rhythmic pounding of a pestle. In the midst of this seemingly uninhabitable world, we find civilisation: a tent, a song, a melody, the sound of stringed instruments with gentle percussion, enriched by omissions and off-beats – Desert Blues. After the huge success of Ambiance du Sahara - Desert Blues, with sales in excess of 100 000, the Frankfurt-based label Network has now released a follow-up album Rêves d'oasis - Desert Blues 2. The enthusiastic press reviews and many awards they won for their first foray into the rich tradition of North African ballads gave the Network team the incentive to take up the challenge once again. For the latest anthology Rêves d'oasis - Desert Blues 2 Christian Scholze and Jean Trouillet took an initial body of some 1000 pieces of music and short-listed them in several rounds until they had a final selection of 26 tracks that cover a broad spectrum from the traditional to the contemporary, featuring encounters between musicians of different cultures. The latest developments are showcased alongside classics that are now available on CD for the first time. This double CD presents the quiet side of Africa’s musical cosmos, with magnificent vocals that entrance the listener, full of sadness and joy: Songs like waves at night, as Bruce Chatwin described them. Music that touches our soul and heals us, as the Tuareg believe. The colours and the atmosphere of the music tell of fantastic landscapes, of desert, oasis and steppe, of ancient cultures and the peoples who live here: Tuareg, Mandinka, Fulani...

Gheorghe Zamfir - Music From The Movies

Posted By MiOd On 2:48 AM 0 comments
"King of the Pan Flute,Gheorghe Zamfir"
Zamfir is the best-known exponent of the pan-pipes or nei, an ancient instrument of southern Europe consisting of reed or wooden pipes graduated in size and bound together in a row. His recording career began when he linked up with Swiss record producer Marcel Cellier, who recorded traditional folk tunes by Zamfir in the early 70s for release on his own label. Already popular in France, Zamfir found a mainstream audience in the UK in 1976 when "Doina De Jale", a traditional funeral tune was used as the theme for a BBC Television series, The Light Of Experience. Released as a single by Epic Records, it was a Top 10 hit. The record also sold well across Europe, and Zamfir was launched on a career in middle-of-the-road music, frequently recording pan-pipe versions of western tunes, pop, classical and religious. Thus, his 1985 album Atlantis included film music, pieces by Jacques Brel and Eric Satie, plus "Stranger On The Shore", the 1962 Acker Bilk hit. In 1979 Zamfir and James Last had a Dutch hit with the theme from "De Verlaten Mijn", and several of his 80s albums were recorded with Dutch orchestra leader Harry van Hoof.

Hugues de Courson et Ahmed al Maghreby - Mozart L'Egyptien

Posted By MiOd On 4:39 AM 0 comments
Hughes De Courson - Mozart In Egypt

The album features Mozart compositions interpolated by Egyptian instruments and singers as well as tracks of Mozart's music recorded in the traditional Western manner but with overlaid tracks of Egyptian percussion and instrumental music that matches the tempo, rhythms and key context of the Mozart original.
Mozart in Egypt, devised by Hughes de Courson, was at its release in 1997, considered in the musical spheres world-wide as a true musical phenomenon and acted as meteorite. Indeed the musical encounter which brought together Mozart and Egypt together was unexpected and explosive! The much awaited Mozart in Egypt 2 features more than 200 musicians & singers, bringing together peoples from Europe and the Middle-East.

There are problems, of course, in trying to marry Mozart and Egypt. Western music takes pride in the vertical arts of harmony and counterpoint. Arabic music is linear, one event following another. The result then is what the producers describe as a "crazy diagonal." And yet it works. Mozart sounds just fine on the oud [ancestor of the lute], and its way of decorating a melodic line is not at all dissimilar to the Western approach. Best of all is hearing the piano and oud together, when one player takes the melodic line, the other harmony.

Paco De Lucia - Luzia

Posted By MiOd On 3:30 AM 0 comments
Paco de Lucia is one of the world's greatest guitarists, as well as the most innovative and influential flamenco artist of the last thirty years. Since the late 1960s his flamenco recordings have had a revolutionary impact, infusing new life into the art form and bringing it worldwide attention. His groundbreaking collaborations with jazz artists and his participation in notable soundtracks have brought him to the attention of a broad audience. Luzia is a brilliant celebration of traditional flamenco forms in instrumentation and composition, something De Lucia has returned to throughout his career, in contrast to explorations with his sextet, or his work with jazz guitarists John McLaughlin and Al Dimeola in their recordings as The Guitar Trio 9. The album is dedicated to De Lucia's mother, Lucia Gomez, who passed away in 1998. The training ground for a flamenco guitarist, De Lucia once said, "is the music around you, made by people you see, the people you make music with. You learn it from your family, from your friends, in la juera (the party) drinking. And then you work on technique. Guitarists do not need to study. And, as it is with any music, the great ones will spend some time working with the young players who show special talent. You must understand that a Gypsy's life is a life of anarchy. That is a reason why the way of flamenco music is a way without the discipline, as you know it. We don't try to organize things with our minds; we don't go to school to find out. We just live... music is everywhere in our lives."

NO BLUES - FAREWELL SHALABIYE

Posted By MiOd On 10:29 PM 0 comments
No Blues is a unique project which explores the connections between two musical worlds, namely: Americana and Arabic music.
For this latest project by Production House Oost- Nederland (ON), Ad van Meurs (guitar), Haytham Safia (U'd, Arabic lute) and Anne-Maarten van Heuvelen (double bass) were invited; their assignment was to investigate a possible combination of folkblues and traditional Arabic music in a three- day session. Both folk-blues and the Arabic taqsim (the improvised interplay without a fixed rhythm) are exceptionally suited for storytelling; the former in a somewhat rawer way, the latter mostly lyrical and melodic. In the same way as Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie documented their era in the early 20th century with their songs, the instrumentalist is the torchbearer of a centuries-old tradition in the virtually unwritten Arabic music culture. Traditional Arabic music differs from other music cultures in the way in which the music scale is subdivided. Thus the music can adopt forms that are nearly impossible in the western octave system. In the NO Blues sessions the musicians soon succeeded in establishing a singular integration of folk-blues and Arabic music. An instantly recognizable sound, which sounds very different at the same time; it sounds familiar, but then again it doesn't. It's a cross-breeding of Americana and Arabic music, which can best be described as Arabicana. It's an album full of sincere and touching music that finds its way straight to your heart. Songs about ordinary folks, love and sadness, played and sung in the tradition that is characteristic for folk-blues as well as Arabic traditional music. The sessions were concluded in 2004 with a successful performance opening for The Holmes Brothers (USA). In 2005 the HT studios in Gemert, Holland were visited in order to make recordings under the supervision of Ankie Keultjes, who contributes vocals both on the CD and live on the upcoming tour.

Compare it to a cup of warm Americana-tea with a particular Arabic blend what you taste is a new and exciting mix of roots music styles. Take a sip and you'll know exactly what we mean..this is 100% pure blend ARABICANA.

The Essential Guide To Arabia [Box Set]

Posted By MiOd On 7:53 AM 0 comments
From the most famous artists with their passionate voices and sweeping orchestral soundscapes, through the raw roots of Raï from the streets of Algeria, to today's glossily confident power-Pop and cutting-edge Dance – The Essential Guide To Arabia, over 3CDs, takes you by the ear and leads you into the heart of Arabic music.

Rather splendid 3 CD set compiled by Phil Meadley. CD1 is ‘Legends’ and features 12 tracks from artists including Lili Boniche, Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Dahmane El Harrachi and my stand out track by Oum Kalsoum. CD2 is ‘Rebels’ so we get Khaled, Cheb Mami amongst 11 tracks with my pick here going to Rasto and a deep mix of rai & reggae. CD3 is ‘Pop & Beyond and includes tracks from Hanino, Kadim Al Sahir and Azzddine with the mighty Bill Laswell. Great collection.

CD1: Legends
1. Mokhtar Al Said & El Ferka El Masaya – Enta Omri A famous tune originally written by legendary Arabic arranger Mohamed Abdel Wahab for Egyptian diva Oum Kulthum, and is reinterpreted here by accordionist Mokhtar Al Saïd under the keen tutelage of ‘raks sharki’ expert Jalilah, and captures the original’s gravitas perfectly.

2. Hassan Houssini – Eleil Eleil By Moroccan raï legend Hassan Houssini, this track is classic gutsy gnawa with archetypal call-and-response choruses underpinned by a driving rhythm on darbuka.

3. Ilham Al Madfai – Mohamad Bouya Mohamad (Dear Beloved) One of Iraq’s greatest musicians, Ilham Al Madfai fled his homeland under Saddam Hussein’s regime, but has now returned and is helping rebuild an international reputation for Iraqi music. His repertoire includes mixing traditional Arabic music with elements of jazz, pop, and flamenco, but here he evokes the timeless allure of ancient Baghdad.

4. Simon Shaheen & Qantara – Fantasie For Oud & String Quartet Israeli born musician Simon Shaheen is a master oud player, and this wonderful track is a reinterpretation of Mohamed Abdel Wahab’s ‘Min Gheir Leh’ mixed with four original variations featuring guest violinist Mark Peskanov.

5. Lili Boniche – Ana Fil Houb Algerian-Jewish singer/guitarist Lil Boniche was re-discovered at the age of 78 playing in a Paris Café. His penchant for mixing up languages (he sings in French as well as Arabic) and styles (flamenco, jazz, traditional) has made him a cult hero, and this remains one of his best-loved songs.

6. Dahmane El Harrachi - Hakhra Fayelle Probably best known through Rachid Taha’s searing cover of ‘Ya Rayah’, Harrachi was one of Algeria’s greatest singers of shaabi (Arab street music). Born the son of a religious dignitary, El Harrachi became famous for his songs about life as a North African immigrant living in France. If you want to discover who influenced Taha’s vocal style then look no further …

7. Nass El Ghiwane – Salif Albattar Uncompromising Moroccan legends Nass El Ghiwane deliver a repertoire of traditional Moroccan music with a rock n’ roll aesthetic. Salif Albattar (also known as The Reaper) is a song about death and how it affects each and every one of us.

8. Najat Aatabou – LM Ouima Discovered after secretly being recorded singing at a family party, Najat Aatabou became a popular, but controversial singer of contemporary Moroccan, Berber, and Arabic songs. Known more recently through a sample of her song ‘Just Tell Me The Truth’ on the Chemical Brothers recent hit ‘Galvanize’, ‘LM Quima’ shows her at her most impassioned.

9. Jil Jilala – Baba Aadi Similar to the rivalry between the Beatles and the Stones, Jil Jilala and Nas El Ghiwane spilt the adoration of the Moroccan public. A far politer alternative to their more rebellious contemporaries, they were founded in Marrakech in 1973 and soon sent the country alight with songs such as ‘Laayoune Ayniya’ (which became an unofficial national anthem) and this track.

10. Omar Faruk Tekbilek (with Steve Shehan) – Dulger One of the Middle East’s most popular multi-instrumentalists, Tekbilek first came to prominence on the soundtrack to ‘Suleyman The Magnificent’ directed by Suzanne Bauman. This moody slice of Turkish/Egyptian opulence carves a direct route back to his earliest influences.

11. Fairuz – Sallimleh Alayh Only one woman has come close to the great Oum Kalsoum in terms of adoration across the Middle East, and she is the Lebanese diva Fairuz. The title of this song translates as ‘Give Him My Regards’ and speaks of the love-torn anguish of a cast aside suitor.

12. Oum Kalsoum – Ala Balad El Mahboub Born in 1904, Oum Kalsoum was the ‘voice of Egypt’ until her death in 1975. Beloved of President Nasser (who never missed her Cairo performance every first Thursday of the month), her impassioned, and hugely theatrical delivery left audiences spellbound. This 1936 recording was taken from the soundtrack to her first (and most famous) movie ‘Wedad’.

CD2: RaI Rebels
1. Hamid Bouchenak – A Shebba Although it’s agreed that Oran in Algeria is the birthplace of Raï, the Moroccan city of Oujda could almost come a close second, and resident Hamid Bouchnak is revered in the Maghreb for his dynamic mix of pop, Raï, gnawa, jazz, and reggae. A Shebba shows an abundance of all these elements.

2. Khaled – Le Camel La Camel is from a period of his career that established Khaled as one of Algeria’s greatest voices. Recorded not long after he moved to France but before he began a hugely successful international career, it’s not hard to hear what drew the major companies to his door in this infectious slice of eighties power pop.

3. Cheb Mami – Madiriche Aliya The Prince of Raï is known to many Westerners as the guy who dueted with Sting on ‘Desert Rose’ but he’s far better known in North Africa for a string of infectious Arabic pop songs, which fully capitalise on his soulful Algerian ululations. A true North African star, this catches him early in his career and shows glimpses of what lay ahead.

4. Rasto – Wach Darou Fina Raï and reggae have long been comfortable bedfellows, and Algerian singer Rasto certainly takes his Jamaican influences seriously. His particular blend of Raï owes as much to Bob Marley as it does to Oran.

5. Haim – Hibina / Linda Linda / Hamouda Better known in recent times as a live favourite of raï rocker Rachid Taha, this song originally featured in ‘Lahn al Khouloud’, a 1952 film by Henry Barakat, and was written by Farid El Atrache. This far poppier rendition is by new Moroccan Raï sensation Haim.

6. Hanino – Douar Zine Moroccan Raï sensation Hanino was born in Oudja but moved to Lille in the early nineties. He started his career singing at weddings, but got his first break in rap-raï group Oxygène. Since then he’s become better known for mixing up raï, reggae and chaabi in an easily accessible style.

7. Cheb Aïssa – Nouara Perhaps better known as the protégé of the great Cheb Mami, Cheb Aissa was born in Saïda (as was his mentor) 200 km from Oran in the west of Algeria. He’s become famous for helping modernise ‘trab’ – a rural style of Raï linked to the gasba flute, and often featuring “risqué lyrics and sexual allusions”.

8. Malik – After RaI Responsible for an Arabic version of ‘Shaft’, which appeared on the first Buddha Bar compilation, Malik Adouane has a reputation for mixing his Saharan roots with a variety of club styles. This is taken from ‘Daïmen’, which attempted put Raï on a more Ibiza orientated trajectory.

9. Cheikh Djelloul Remchaoui – Adieu A master of Moroccan Trab music, Cheikh Djelloul Remchaoui draws the listener back to the earliest days of Raï with his haunting desert blues sound and gruff, earthy vocal style.

10. Cheikha Remitti – C’est Fini, J’en Ai Marre From the ‘grandmother of Raï’, and still a huge influence to many contemporary Raï singers, this song has a typically defiant title which translates as “I’ve finished, I’ve had enough”. Trademark pummelling guellal drums and omnipresent gasba flute make this a particularly fine example of her work.

11. Cheikh Meftah – Consulat It’s only recently that artists such as Cheikh Meftah and Cheikha Remitti have come to the attention of music lovers outside of Algeria. Their earthy ‘trab’ music style is as old as the Atlas Mountains and just as timeless.

CD3: Pop & beyond
1. Hakim & Olga Ta??n – Ya Albi Egyptian shaabi superstar Hakim hooked up with Puerto Rican Queen of Merengue Olga Tanon in a chateau in France at the behest of music mogul Miles Copeland. Latin-American hip-hop star Kemo (Delinquent Habits) joined the party and this fabulously infectious hit single was the result.

2. Cheikh DB Mix – Allaoui & Reggada Allaoui is a type of dance from West Algeria used exclusively in Oran and Oujda, and Reggada is a particular vocal style from the same region. This is a cool fusion of both from the unlikely named Cheikh DB Mix.

3. Hanino – Cuite Ni Hanino first came to prominence collaborating with the Bouchenak Brothers on his debut album ‘Al Bardia’. Since then the Moroccan heartthrob has made countless albums drawing on elements of raï, shaabi, and reggada amongst others. This track is perfect slice of North African pop.

4. Nancy – Akhasmak Ah (We Might Quarrel) Born in Asrafiyeh, Lebanon, in 1983, Nancy Ajram started her career by covering the songs of Fairuz and Oum Kalsoum, before releasing a debut album in her early teens. The title translates as “I’d get upset from you”, and propelled her into superstardom plus a lucrative deal with Coca Cola.

5. Hasna – Marsoul Il Hob (Object Of My Affection) With an intro hugely reminiscent of Panjabi MC’s ‘Mundian To Bach Ke’, this is sensuous Arabic pop by beautiful Moroccan singer Hasna. A huge hit across the Middle East, it was written by Moroccan musician Abdel Wahab el-Doukali.

6. Najwa Karam – Bara’ah Najwa Karam helped put Lebanese pop music on the map in the 1990’s. A philosophy graduate, she released her first album ‘Ya Hahayec’ in 1989, and has since won many admirers and countless awards, making her one of the Arabic world’s best loved divas.

7. Yuri Mrakadi – Arabyon Ana (Circus mix) One of the biggest stars of the moment, Lebanese singer Yuri Mrakadi hit the ground running with the release of his debut album in 2001. Frequently used by big multi-national corporations to help endorse their products, his voice and looks mark him out as a very gifted - and corporate savvy - performer.

8. Beirut Biloma – Take Me To Beirut Originally a huge club anthem entitled ‘Drive me to Beirut’ this remake appeared on the debut album of Lebanese producer Mohamed Kebbe’s current project Beirut Biloma. Arabic dance isn’t usually faceless, but Kebbe relies on a host of singers and rappers to help front his expansive productions.

9. Kadim Al Sahir – Baghdad (Kathora Al Hadeeth) (Transglobal Underground alternative mix) Iraqi heartthrob Kadim Al Sahir has often courted controversy. At the start of his career he refused to sell out by singing manufactured pop, and his first hit ‘Ladghat El Hayya’ in 1987 was a thinly veiled critique of the recent Iran-Iraq conflict. Having studied traditional Arabic music at Baghdad Music Academy his contemporary compositions have more depth than most, as this rare Transgloblal Underground remix testifies.

10. Dar Beida 04 feat. Amina Annabi – Fet Li Fet A studio collaboration between Swiss producer Pat Jabbar and Moroccan artist Ahderrahim Akkaoui, Dar Beida (the Arabic name for Casablanca) mixed trance, dub and chill-out sounds with traditional Moroccan music and raï. On this track Tunisian chanteuse Amina Annabi sings of peaceful support for Palestine.

11. Azzddine with Bill Laswell - Srir F’al Houbb Azzddine Ouhnine is a blind Oud player and composer from Rabat, the capital of Morocco. Here he collaborates with various members of his orchestra, alongside esteemed bass player Bill Laswell, to produce a fine fusion of Moroccan dub and swooping Arabic strings.

12. Aisha Kandisha’s Jarring Effects - Lahbab Underground Moroccan trance collective, Aisha Kandisha’s Jarring Effects, were named after a mythical enchantress/she-devil and in the early 90’s developed a considerable following in Europe. This track sees them at the height of their powers, taken from the cult album ‘Shabeesation’ which also featured Bill Laswell, Umar Bin Hassan of the Last Poets, and P-Funk keyboardist Bernie Worrell.

Music of Islam Vol. 1-15 [Box-Set] (Celestial Harmonies Series)

Posted By MiOd On 8:10 AM 0 comments
It would have been more appropriate to name the album, "Music of the Islamic World" since the music in this and others in the series are a collection of classical performances from Muslim countires.
Amazon.com From remote areas of Indonesia to southern Spain, this 17-CD box set is comprehensive in its scope of music made by those following the Islamic faith. The discs include Quran recitations, Sufi qawwali, the music of whirling dervishes, the folk music of Egypt, Andalusian sounds of Morocco, and recordings from Yemen, Tunisia, Turkey, Iran, and several other countries, some of which you may not have thought housed Muslim populations. In short, the collection is sublime, recorded and researched lovingly by producer David Parsons, who managed to cover the full range of Islamic music. If a nearly $200 price tag frightens you, consider the sampler or Volume Four: Music of the Arabian Peninsula for starters. Consider the entire box after the sacred voices and ancient instruments melt your heart into this music rich in tradition, sanctity, and musical complexity. --Karen K. Hugg
The Music of Islam: THE PROJECT Ten years in the making, The Music of Islam series recorded in Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Yemen, Pakistan, Indonesia, Iran and Qatar represents the most comprehensive sound documentation available to Westerners today, of a world religion dating back to 1/622. Although governed by strict rules for fourteen centuries, contact with other cultures has radically affected Islamic music throughout history. As the world enters the XV/21st century the timing of this collection serves an even larger purpose, documenting the traditions that have survived and will continue to survive for centuries to come. Today, one fifth of the world's population, over one billion people, are Muslims, occupying a large territory stretching from the Atlantic shore of north and west Africa, through west, central, and south Asia to island southeast Asia, and attracting an increasing following in India, western Europe, north America, east Asia, and southern Africa. This is a global presence which cannot be ignored. With 17 CDs in 15 volumes, The Music of Islam boxed set artistically presents nearly 20 hours of diversely rich Islamic music recorded throughout the Islamic Belt with over 800 pages of synoptic scholastic text written by leading scholars and ethnomusicologists from around the world. Creating a class of its own, and perhaps setting a new standard, The Music of Islam is an unequalled sound document destined to live beyond our time and, regrettably, most likely surpass the very existence of some of the people and cultures featured.
ANSWERS.COM Inimitable world music producer Eckart Rahn again brings listeners a collection of recordings that is as moving as it is obscure as it is technically perfect. This sampler selects from a 15-volume set documenting the state of Islamic music from Turkey south to Yemen and Morocco east to Indonesia. The sampler is available for sale, separate from the perhaps imposing set. Detailed documentation discusses Islamic music cursorily and technically. Instrumentation, the role of religion in the music, and Islam and its history are also covered. Unfortunately, there is not much track-by-track text other than the source of each cut. The sampler begins very strongly, with an unaccompanied feat of vocal acrobatics in a Koran recitation recorded in Istanbul, followed by a rich arrangement of Iranian strings and percussion. From Marrakesh, Morocco, comes a sonorous example of deep-pitched drums backing group song. After this example of Gnawa music is an Egyptian flute, string, and percussion melody that clearly brings pyramids and oases to mind. Returning to Istanbul, listeners hear a surprisingly sedate male chorus backed by flute and tambourines from Music of Islam, Vol. 9: Mawlawiyah Music of the Whirling Dervishes. (Perhaps even dervishes need to relax.) Coming from Yemen is a very intricate and hypnotic melody from a plucked string instrument. The compilers chose to represent Pakistan with a near seven-minute raga. A clear, bright, Oriental female voice defines an Indonesian ensemble. Having heard from lower Egypt, listeners make a visit to upper Egypt where the leader of a Nubian troupe initiates each verse answered by the chorus, all to a lively drum beat. More exotic, moving, and densely structured music is heard from Qatar, Egypt, Morocco, Turkey, Tunisia, and Morocco. ~ Thomas Schulte, All Music Guide

The Music of Islam, Vol. 14: Mystic Music Through the Ages

Posted By MiOd On 2:54 PM 0 comments
Music Of Islam (Celestial Harmonies Series)
From the surprisingly good and comprehensive series of Islamic music on Celestial Harmonies comes this volume, dealing with mystic musics of Islam, primarily that of the Sufis, and moreover that of Turkey to a large extent. The performers are the Galata Mevlevi house, led by Nail Kesova, also available on volume nine of the series (Whirling Dervishes). The playing is impeccable, with a trio of ney players providing the breathy sound that is so necessary for a good bit of Sufi music. The vocals are also perfectly in place, with an outstanding performance by Kesova. Songs are largely works of poetry, with three from the great Rumi, and a number from other mystics through the ages (as the title would suggest). For a nice look through all aspects of Islamic music, this series is probably the way to go. For a simple look into the Sufist traditions, this album fits right in competition with a number of other ones, but the quality of music here might give it a bit of an edge. ~ Adam Greenberg, All Music Guide
This collection of Sufi music is superb; as the liner notes explain, Turkish music reflects the history of its relationship with Central Asia, and also the influence of Persian classical form with its elegance and purity, a combination which perhaps to the Western ear might sound extremely foreign. I find this fourteenth CD of the magnificent "Music of Islam" series to be soul-stirring and uplifting. If you enjoy this type of music, it is an ideal recording to minimize the din and sensory overload of the 21st century world. These mystic Sufi hymns are sung with much beauty and piety, and with the backing of classical art music instruments, which are: The nay (oblique flute), with its whispery sound, the tanbur (a long-necked lute), the qanun (a type of zither), the kamanche (fiddle), and kundum (drums). Some of the songs use the poetry of the great Rumi, and others chant the holy names of God; of my very favorites, track 8 is a liturgical piece by Rumi used to begin religious celebrations, and the final track is a recitation that is a fitting ending for this exquisite CD. To quote the liner notes: "The concluding prayer is chanted in a way that blurs the distinction between speech and song", and it is from the Qur'an: "East or West, it all belongs to God; wherever you turn God is there". The musicians are from the Galata Mevlevi Music and Sema Ensemble who are based in Turkey, where this recording was made. The presentation on all 16 CDs (including the sampler) of this Celestial Harmonies series is exceptional. This one has a 11 page booklet with extensive history, detailed explanation of each musical piece, recording info, and more. Total time is 63'56.
