Music in the Age of the Pyramids - Ancient Egypt

Posted By MiOd On Saturday, December 30, 2006 3 comments
Music variously composed, arranged and conducted by Rafael Pérez ARROYO
In collaboration with Syra Bonet, musicologist Rafael Pérez Arroyo, former director of the acclaimed Sony Hisp?nica collection, has just released the first fruit of many years of research into the music of Ancient Egypt. The result is a spectacular CD entitled Music in the Age of Pyramids, performed by Arroyo's Hathor Ensemble. Realization of the music by Arroyo was based on study of the metric structure of hymns which survive in writing, discussion of music theory from heiroglyphics, sonic descriptions by ancient authors, and iconography. Arroyo has also made an effort at decoding a partial chironomy (hand gestures, the same source claimed for Biblical music), and discovered three basic modes for Ancient Egyptian music.

Govi - Your Lingering Touch

Posted By MiOd On Thursday, December 28, 2006 1 comments
Your Lingering Touch: Govi at His Romantic Best
Many new age artists enjoy choosing generic album titles that convey little about the music they play, but the spirited acoustic guitarist Govi proves the exception to this rule. Titles from his catalog -- Passion Grace, Guitar Odyssey, and Heart of a Gypsy in particular -- reflect his basic intent to take us to places within ourself with music that's graceful and seductive, gentle but emotionally powerful. This recording draws together 12 gently exotic, flamenco-based moments from his six previous Real Music recordings. Tunes like "Tears of Joy" lope along with a cool strut, almost like a character whistling to himself in an old Western town. "Magellan's Beat" features a hypnotic flamenco strum enhanced by haunting echoing Native American flutes; on this tune, Govi's guitar is very much like that of Lobo from the gypsy violin-guitar duo Willie Lobo. The title track is less ethnic -- just a simple, dreamy guitar melody. "Sangria" rolls casually along like a samba enhanced with an echoing electric melody. "Lover's Moon" also showcases Govi's way with cool electric blues. And who can resist the nature sounds at the beginning of the whimsical "New Dawn"? Govi is more intent on creating a gentle, swaying vibe than anything too explosive or dynamic, and our inner peace seems to be the goal of his exotic meditation music.

Marcel Khalifé - Taqasim

Posted By MiOd On Thursday, December 28, 2006 2 comments
Lebanese composer Marcel Khalife is a true master of the oud which is an Arabic lute that few can truly actually master. He tickles the strings with accuracy and precision unlike any other oud player I’ve ever heard emanate from the Middle East or abroad. “Taqasim” is a dedication to Palestinian national poet Mahmoud Darwish that uses solely the lower registers of the oud and upright bass to communicate Darwish’s message on a sub-level consciousness. Intriguing music that you’ll want to explore for hours.
More Youtube HERE With his latest work,Taqasim, Lebanese composer and 'ud master Marcel Khalife takes his dedication to poet Mahmoud Darwish to a deeper level. He uses solely, and without lyrics, the lower register of the 'ud and upright bass to communicate “those tremendous but obscure dimensions that are often ignored by the listeners’ ears – the task of expressing the profound consonance between the poet and the musician.”

Through the 'ud, Khalifé brings Darwish’s world of the Palestinian people’s dispossession and exile to all, regardless of the listener’s background or familiarity with Arab music, inviting everyone to embrace its deep and subtle complexities and savor its nuances.

Khalifé has often spoken out for peace and reconciliation, having risked his life performing in bombed out concert halls during Lebanon’s civil war. Israel seized Khalifé’s cassettes upon invading his country, Lebanon, in 1982.

This past August Khalifé wrote to fellow UNESCO Artists for Peace in response to Israel’s bombing of Lebanon, “Nothing justifies our art other than to speak for those who cannot speak. This is the cause for which we dedicated our efforts, and the cause that endorsed our voices. We only wished to take it as far as we can, and vowed to release our work as songs of love for, and unity with, the victims of persecution everywhere.” His core passion lies in transforming the Arab music tradition, picking up the thread spun by the great composers and musicians of the early 20th century, figures like Egyptian composer Sayyed Darweesh. Khalifé calls for a new approach, one that brings instrumental music to the forefront of a tradition that has often laid heavy emphasis on singers and songs: "We Arabs have no history of our music. In my judgment, we have linked music to singing, and it is time to write down the history of music, not just song." Khalifé’s previous work has stretched the world’s understanding of the 'ud by crafting new contexts and ensembles for the instrument, often by setting the lyrical and complex poems of Mahmoud Darwish to music. Yet now, Khalifé has decided to set aside direct references to Darwish’s words and the song form.

This homage to Darwish is “not a song because I want to manifest the subtle, the unspoken,” Khalifé explains. Instead, he has let the 'ud speak for itself, coupled with Peter Herbert’s elegant upright bass. The bass is the perfect companion for the 'ud, Khalifé believes, as “Lower registers are what the 'ud is reaching for, where the devilish subtleties lie, and where speech is limited. There, often lies the truth.” This truth, the “moon beyond the peak of words,” is a deeply personal one for Khalifé and many of Darwish’s numerous admirers in the Arab world. Even before Khalifé made Darwish’s acquaintance, he recalls, “I felt as though Darwish’s poetry, with its divine assertiveness and prophetic cadences, had been revealed to me and for me. I could nearly savor his ‘mother’s bread’ that has become iconic to his readers. I could identify with his passport, which I fancied carried my picture, just as personally as I could identify with his olive grove, his sand, and his sparrows. They were all, at a personal level, mine.” Khalifé’s profound engagement with Darwish, his work and his fate as a Palestinian has translated into decades of work based on Darwish poems. Taqasim, though an integral part of Khalifé’s quest for a new approach to the 'ud, is something of a departure from his previous Darwish-inspired pieces. The wordless improvisations of Taqasim aim to “re-create what the poetry of Darwish has created in me,” transforming the grammar and sense of words into rhythm and melody. When asked how Western listeners should find Darwish’s spirit in Khalifé’s confident tones, Khalifé responds simply: “Deprogram yourselves and explore the universe with your innate minds.”

I was born like everyone is born... I have a view of my own and an extra blade of grass. I have a moon past the peak of words.” -Mahmoud Darwish

Anouar Brahem Trio - Barzakh

Posted By MiOd On Thursday, December 28, 2006 2 comments
Beautiful collection of 13 tracks by Tunisian composer Anouar Brahem. The album spotlights Brahem's solo oud pieces, which range from the meditative ("Sadir") to the propulsive ("Ronda"). This solo work is nicely augmented by stellar contributions from violinist Bechir Selmi and percussionist Lassad Hosni; Selmi is featured on the transcendent "Barzakh," while Hosni figures prominently on "Souga" and "Bou Naouara." The three musicians come together for the joyous dance number "Parfum de Gitane." Throughout Barzakh, Brahem and the others forge an appealing mix of Middle Eastern sonorities and jazz phrasing, an intimate sound perfectly suited to the clean and spacious ECM recording style. This is a great title for fans of both international music and jazz. ~ Stephen Cook, All Music Guide

A Gift Of Love: Music Inspired By The Love Poems Of Rumi

Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, December 26, 2006 1 comments
A Gift Of Love: Deepak & Friends Present Music Inspired By The Love Poems Of Rumi
"A Gift of Love" features a host of celebs reciting the poetry of Rumi accompanied by the tranquil soundscapes of composers Adam Plack and Yaron Fuchs. In addition to Madonna, [Demi] Moore and [Martin] Sheen, the album also features Blythe Danner, Debra Winger, Goldie Hawn and others.
Rumi that we call him Molavi is a Dervish, who found everything in himself and love to the whole not to the single. He did not believed in any rules. His rules were his love to the world, to himself and us. All he just wanted to say is that there is something more than a materialistic life. Everybody who has not a background of the spiritual life especially in middle eastern countries will think of these poems as love to human, but Molavi believes that love is everything, and he himself is the God. When he says that God is here, just in me, it means that there is no conflict between loving myself and loving you. It is the same, we all love the same thing,God which is the whole existence of the world, everything you can imagine. Thanks to this team that tried to show the westerns that there is something more than fashion and this materialistic life. There are people who just live with their pure love to themselves and the whole and nothing more, and they are the happiest people in the world. Because they believe in that. I really loved this music, it reminded me of my country and my people and my history. Everytime I am trying to release myself from this prison which everybody is obliged to live in here, I listen to these gnostic songs. I am afraid that there is no special word for Erfan in English!

Al-Andalus Collection [2 ]. Naseer Shamma - Maqamat Zíryáb

Posted By MiOd On Saturday, December 23, 2006 3 comments
Maqamat Zíryáb
Desde el Eúfrates al Guadalquivir - From Euphrates to the Guadalquivir Naseer Shamma
Naseer Shamma was born in 1963 in Kut, a village on the Tigris River in Iraq. He began studying the ud at the age of 12 in Baghdad, following in the footsteps of Jamil and Munir Bachir. When he was 11, Shamma saw the ud for the first time, in the hands of a stylish music teacher . Although Shamma's father, a shop owner, was religiously conservative, he did not object to his son's artistic ambitions. In 1985, Shamma played his own compositions at his first concert, attended by several renowned Iraqi artists. At the time, he worked closely with "the emir of the ud," the late Iraqi master Munir Bashir. But Shamma wanted to blaze his own path. Master Munir invented the technique of contemplation with oud, but I wanted my music to carry content, an idea or image that is shocking. He received his diploma from the Baghdad Academy of Music in 1987. He began to teach ud after three years at the academy, as well as continuing his own studies. Shamma has composed music for films, plays and television, and has written a unique ud method for one hand - this is designed at for children injured during the Gulf War. Between 1993 and 1998 he taught ud the Higher Institute of Music in Tunisia, and in 1999 he took the post of Director of the Arab Centre for the Ud in Cairo. His compositions are culturally unique. He performs on the oud in a manner which combines ancient methods with his own modern compositions. He has constructed an eight-string ud following the manuscript of the 9th century music theorist al-Farabi. This new design (8 instead of 6 strings) expanded the musical range of the ud and gave it a distinct tonality.

Posted By MiOd On Saturday, December 23, 2006 0 comments
The Al-Andalus Collection falls to five general categories : A) MEDIEVAL ANDALUSI STYLE: Arab-Andalusian music from the perspective of the medieval society that created it. The instrumentation and artistic presentation are based on original documents and instruments copied from period originals. B) MUSIC IN ARCHITECTURE: Musical projects based on the poetic inscriptions on the great archtectural monuments such as the Alhambra, the Alcazar of Seville or the Aljaferia of Zaragoza, reflecting the world of the court and the great poets of Al-Andalus. C) PRESENT DAY PERFORMSNCE IN ANDALUSI TRADITION: Sufi Andalusi music and nawbahs, in search of the teachings of the great Andalusi masters from the beginning of the 20th century, avoiding the influence of the oriental style. D) RECOVERY OF MOROCCO'S MUSICAL HERITAGE: Historic recordings from the 50's and 60's by the last great Andalusi masters, before the influence of radio and television that has transformed trditional musical tastes. E) AL-ANDALUS IN THE EAST: Andalusi moaxajas from Aleppo, Syria, and other classical Arab music by the oriental masters of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Prado de Gacelas - Meadow of Gazelles - Prairie des Gazelles: Núba Sika Maluf de Constantina - Música Andalusí de Argelia Salim Fergani
Cheikh Salim Fergani is a maestro of Maluf (also known as Maâlouf) music. Fergani was born in 1953 in Constantine, in a family of musicians and artisans, embroiderers, since the “Beys”(Otoman princes) period. He is the eldest of hadj Mohamed Tahar Fergani’s sons, the leader of Music in Constantine and the grandson of sheikh Hamou Fergani (1884-1912), the famous hawzi singer and the Sufi Aissaoua group. From this strong musical familiar surroundings, he had a gift for music, since he was young. His father taught him Arab Andalusian music. His uncle, Mohamed Seddik Fergani (1913-1995), named Zouaoui, introduced him to the techniques and the art of the ud (Arabic lute). Since 1968, he started his professional carrier with his father Hadj Mohamed Tahar Fergani in recordings. At the same time, despite of his father’s presence, Cheikh Salim Fergani interacted with other sheikhs of Constantine who taught him more about ’Maluf, Mahdjuz, Hawzi, Arubi, Quadriates and Zadjel. He has excellent memory, which allows him to assimilate information easily. Like his father, he devoted himself exclusively to music, to improve his knowledge, learning from cheikh Abdelkader Toumi (1906-2005), a remarkable encyclopedia. After long years, this relationship has played a key role in Salim Fergani’s life and in the music of Constantine. Salim Fergani improved his skills, close his father, as a member in the familia orchestra. He also performs as a musician and singer with his own group. He has performed concerts, made recordings and has been featured on TV, letting the public discover an artist with talent and knowledge of the music of Constantine during the 1970’s. Since the 1980’s, he's had brilliant international career that led him to Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States of America. His control on the musical repertory and the ud, his understanding of communication, his rigor and human qualities made him an artist particularly demanded by international cultural institutions. Written and translated by Benderbal Hichem. Edited by World Music Central. Arab Andalusian Music The Algerian classical music named ‘’Indalousy,’’ or Andalus, is the heiress of Arabic music, the synthesis of the ancient eastern civilization. The musical scale is essentially Greek, the modes are Persian ‘’segha (sika), Tchahar-Gah (Djarka) while the rhythms have maintained their Arabic origin: Raml, darj, etc. In the West there is Ziriab, fruit of the contact between Magreb (Northwestern Africa) and Medieval Andalusian music. This music gave birth to a system of 24 nubas based on theoretical rules on the influences of metaphysical cosmogony and symbolisms. After the end of Moorish Spain 1492, this musical tradition migrated to the big cities of North Africa, such as Fez, Tlemcen, Algiers, Constantine, and Tunis. Essentially melodic, Algerian classical music, named Andalus (or Andalouse)’ is maintained due to an oral tradition in which there are some difficulties in symbolizing by the system of western notation. This tradition is represented in Algeria by three schools : Tlemcen or ‘’Ghernati’’ from Granada, Algiers or ‘’Canaa’’ of Cordoban tradition and Constantine, ‘’ the malouf school’’ from Seville. The nuba is an instrumental and vocal composition in a certain order of rhythmic rules and models. Each nuba is built on a mode (tabaa) from which it is named. A different rhythm is associated to each movement .This can be followed directly or by an intermediate short instrumental piece. A large part is unexpected. Each nuba is played at an hour of the day. Therefore, there were 24 nubas. The tradition has each nuba made on a theme adapted to the hour at which it is played. The themes generally discussed are religious life, love, and nature. Both Arab and Andalus people of North Africa use instruments such as the ud (lute), the qanun, fiddles, nay (flute) and percussion. The ud is generally an essential instrument to which one can add 2 or 3 other instruments and percussion. Official Web Site: www.turnagainmusic.com
Sumptuous melodies lend more value to the pure poetry and rich language of the Sika Nuba which dates back to ancient Persia The music forces the musician to exceed his artistic ability.

La Música de Al-Andalus
La muwassaha Al Turath Ensemble - Muhammad Hamadiyih
The "muwashshaha" is essentially a poetic-improvisatory vocal genre, with origins in medieval Spain. This is a very "Arabic" performance, concentrating primarily on styles outlined in medieval Spanish texts, but continued in present day Syria.
The Al Turath Ensemble of Aleppo is considered to be one of the most prestigious musical groups in Syria, since it upholds the roots of tradition. It was founded in 1954 by Sabri Mudallah, and at one time or another, the most important singers from Aleppo have been part of it. In 1985 Mohammed Hammadye took over as leader and expanded the vocal group by adding an instrumental one. In its repertoire the group includes the moaxajas and traditional songs of Aleppo, as well as songs rooted in Sufi mysticism, and popular songs. The Ensemble´s fame has been fully recognized through its participation in many international festivals. Al Turath´s motto is ´art for art´s sake´, as in their eyes music is the measure of human civilization.

Paco Pena - Flamenco Master

Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, December 19, 2006 1 comments
Paco Pena - Flamenco Master: Essential Flamenco Recordings Paco is probably the most original guitarist within the history of Flamenco yet his art is deeply rooted in the tradition and his style directly linked to past masters.
Paco Peña (1942 - ) is a Flamenco guitarist.Born in Córdoba, Spain as Francisco Peña Pérez, he began learning to play the guitar at age 6 and made his first professional appearance at age 12. In the late 1960's he moved to London. Peña was soon touring the world both as a soloist and an accompanist with performances at Carnegie Hall in New York City, the Royal Albert Hall in London and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. He founded the world's first university course on flamenco guitar, at the conservatory of music of Rotterdam.
Paco Peña has few rivals into the world OF flamenco guitar and Flamenco master offers A good introduction tons his passionate kind. He's wave known tons of British of audiences for his regular steam turbine and gas turbine systems spectaculars that involve many OTHER musicians and dancers, but this compilation focuses largely on Peña the soloist, drawing on four OF the best album he recorded for the now defunct nimbus label into the late 80s and early 90s. OF thesis, only the material from Encuentro Paco Peña y Eduardo Falú and the somewhat overrated Misa Flamenca feature vocal accompanists--in the case OF the more latter, A whole choir OF singers from the Academy OF Saint Martin into the Fields Chorus. Groundbreaking, but A little pompous, it's his leases typical records as searches, since he's known as much more OF A traditionalist than, say, A nuevo flamenco innovator like Paco de Lucía. To Peña nonetheless bring his own distinctive stamp tons songs fro! m flamenco's “public domain” and compositions by past masters like Ramón Montoya and Niño Ricardo, who were his chief musical role models. Distinctively from covering the Main Andalucian form look for as bulerias, alegrias and of brine acre, Peña shows A welcome affinity with the folk music form OF South America into the pieces with Argentinian of singer Falú, who has A pleasant vocal style. Two OF the TRACKs taken from the Azahara album feature Tito Losada as A second guitarist, but for Peña out on his own, check the strongly beauty OF “Zambra”, “Acera del Rio” or “La pink one.” --Jon Lusk
| MP3 320Kbps | Incl. Full Covers & booklet |185 MB | TRACK LISTINGS [01]. Canción: Legend has it that ‘peteneras’ were created for a beautiful woman from the village of Petenera, near Seville, who destroyed men’s hearts. Pure creations and based on popular verses they are quite dissimilar from all other ‘cantes’. [02]. Solquema: ‘Burning Sun’ is a bulerías, a technically intricate form whose complex rhythmic accents make it possibly the most difficult for the guitarist. [03]. La Rosa: ‘Alegrias’, literally ‘Gaieties’ come from Cádiz. [04]. Tonada del viejo amor: Eduardo Falú’s verses tell how memories of an ‘old’ summer love keeps the winter cold at bay. [05]. Zambra: composed by ‘Niño Ricardo’ one of the great Sevillean guitarists of the early 20th century. [06]. Santo: Peña’s astonishing 1990 ‘Misa Flamenco’ is encapsulated in this ‘tanguillos’, sung by the Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chorus. [07]. Soleá: Ramón Montoya was the first great master of modern virtuoso style, illuminating it with deep gypsy perceptions. [08]. Gloria: ‘Fandangos’ are said to have descended from the ‘jota’ of northern Spain and are based on poetic verses. [09]. Danza Cordobesa: The two Cordobas, Pena’s home town in Spain and that of Argentina are evoked here. [10]. Farruca: The ‘farruca’ (‘courageous’) is an adaptation of an Asturian dance noted for displaying male virility, brought to the Cádiz by northern migrants. [11]. Acerca del Río. Considered to be the oldest and most important flamenco form, these soleares (from ‘soledad’ meaning loneliness) tell about the river. [12]. Claroscuro: These chiaroscuro ‘tangos’ have come into flamenco from Andalucian folklore and popular sources. [13]. Rondeña: Ramón Montoya’s watershed composition. [14]. Milonga Uruguaya: Beloved of the River Plate ‘gaucho’ horseman, the ‘milonga’ is also a form of tango. [15]. Mantilla y peina: A flamenco ‘guajira’, a Cuban country dance, named for the classic comb and lace shawl worn by Andalucian women at Easter time and weddings. [16]. La Huarmillita: With the dancing swing of the ‘cueca’ these verses sing of the desire of a man for his woman and his ‘poncho spread over the bed’.

Oum Kalsoum - Anthologie [Box-Set]

Posted By MiOd On Sunday, December 17, 2006 12 comments
Om Kalsoum was a giant in Egyptian music, and this is a giant set of her music. With eight tracks spread over five compact discs, these are epic-length tunes, and a box set like this is clearly aimed at the Om Kalsoum aficionado. The sound quality is quite listenable, but not fantastic; however, she always possessed a powerful voice and always performed with the finest ensembles, so if you're a fan, this could be a gold mine. ~ Sean Westergaard, All Music Guide
Star of the East "Oum Kalsoum"
Virtually every culture has its divas. The Arab world has Umm Kalthoum. With a devoted audience stretching from North Africa to the Levant and hailing from all parts of Arab society, this Egyptian born singer is regarded as the most gifted female voice of the twentieth century. Over twenty years after her death, Umm Kalthoums popularity is as phenomenal as the voice she was blessed with. Her expressive voice, her cries of despair, and her ability to convey the meaning and mood of her lyrics still manages to profoundly effect her audience. Whether they are national songs, religious chants, or love ballads, Umm Kalthoums voice touches the Arab soul. Yet Umm Kalthoums popularity is without boundaries in time or geography. For decades she performed live not only in her native country, but throughtout the Arab world, as well as Europe. Having reached world renown status, her albums can be found today at most American music distributors as well; something unique to only a few Arab performers. What is most amazing about Umm Kalthoum, however, is that it is not necessary to understand Arabic well or to have lived in the Middle East to appreciate the feeling behind the words. Some of her most avid admirers are young Arab-Americans who grew up in a completely different time and place than the Arab audience of the 1930’s to 1960’s. Celebrating the miracle of Arabs and the Muslim faith through song, she has come to represent everything Arab. Not surprisingly, she has been given the honorable titles of “Star of the East”, “Empress of Arab Tunes”, “Ambassadress of Arabic Arts” and the “Voice of Egypt.”

Paco de Lucia - Live...One Summer Night

Posted By MiOd On Sunday, December 17, 2006 2 comments
Not easy to find (I didn't even know that existed) and great live show from Paco and his Sextet. The entitled "Altamar" track includes also a new version for "Entre dos aguas" as Paco likes to improvise and renew his popular tracks, this is no exception. There is a great solo duo between Paco's guitar and the sax player (I don't know who he is) that makes the crowd go crazy. There is also a small part of "Como el agua" from Camarón in the "Solo quiero caminar" track. One of the most acclaimed moments from the show. You should not miss this record if you like to listen to Paco and his Sextet Live.

Marcel Khalife - Caress

Posted By MiOd On Friday, December 15, 2006 6 comments
Khalife’s musical career has consistently been marked by two traits. The first is a multi-faceted, category-defying approach to music itself. “My grandfather was a fisherman and he used to sing songs of the sea,” Khalife recalls. “Then I used to go to church and listen to Christian music, and also to Islamic recitations of the Koran. In Lebanon we have a marriage of Islamic and Christian culture. That really helped to form my musical awareness.” Khalife always drew from diverse musical sources and composed in a variety of settings from oud duos to full orchestras. His composition is noted for being deeply attached to lyrical text. Through his association with great contemporary Arab poets, most notably Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, he seeks to renew the character of Arab song, breaking its stereotypes and advancing the culture of the society that surrounds it. Millions in the Arab World recognize Khalife as a cultural icon.
Caress: A mix of Western & Eastern Jazz together in one fantastic album! Marcel Khalife is a master oud player, & he has gathered together an international cast of piano, violin (MMMMMMMM - What else has Omar Guey done!??), vibraphone and bass. The whole cast is OUTSTANDING - Rami Khalife on piano, Peter Herbert on Double Bass, Bachar Khalife on Percussion....

The Network Anthologies 3: L'épopée Tzigane , Road of the Gypsies

Posted By MiOd On Friday, December 15, 2006 7 comments
The Network Anthologies 1: Ambiances du Sahara ? Desert Blues 1 The Network Anthologies 2: Rêves d' oasis ? Desert Blues 2
Following the enormous international success of Desert Blues, the Network team now presents a veritable cornucopia of profoundly emotional ballads and fiery instrumental pieces on the theme of Gypsy blues. 32 tracks, a third of them never released before, conjure up a panorama of the fantastic journey that began a thousand years ago and led these people from Rajasthan through Afghanistan, Iraq and Egypt, across Armenia, Turkey and the Balkans, throughout Europe and all the way to Spain. Treated as outcasts, they often had little choice but to express their feelings through music and dance. Baudelaire, on his travels, was fascinated by the Gypsies, referring to them as a "prophetic tribe with glowing eyes". Their songs reflect their love of nature and their lust for life, and tell of their suffering and their day to day existence. Played with stupendous virtuosity, their music invariably bears witness to the many different forms of musical expression developed by the Rom, the Sinti and other groups in the course of their travels. Together with leading Gypsy music specialist Alain Weber in Paris, who also wrote the accompanying text, Christian Scholze and Jean Trouillet have spent two years of research in compiling this selection of the most moving works by 28 ensembles from 17 countries; the result is a double CD presenting two and a half hours of truly heart-rending music. This unprecendented compilation is a far cry indeed from the kitsch cliché of Gypsy folklore. The life and culture of the Gypsies is the great love of Parisian photographer Carlos Mu?oz-Yagüe. He granted us access to his extensive archives containing thousands of photos taken on his countless journeys in search of Gypsy life. We have chosen a few of them to illustrate the Road of the Gypsies, so that, like Desert Blues, it is not only a musical experience, but also a visual one.
Road of the Gypsies is an indispensable first stop on any excursion into the world of Gypsy music. The two CDs contain 32 tracks from many of the greatest names in Gypsy music and cover the whole spectrum, from the Middle East through Romania, Hungary, and France and down to Spain. Eloquent liner notes detail the history, migration and cultural impact of this "invisible nation" and its music. The impeccable music selections echo this theme, kicking off with the late Cameron, flamenco's greatest voice, singing the poetry of Federico Garc?a Lorca, but accompanied by sitar. Elsewhere Taraf de Haidouks (Romania), Charcoal Gypsies (Egypt), and Bratsch (France) illustrate the enormous variety in the genre, with its many subdivisions such as the rom, manouche, and flamenco styles, all very distinct. Echoes of Django Reinhardt, himself a Gypsy, can also be heard in the French jazz guitar styles of Titi Winterstein. Gypsy music inspired Cervantes, Bart?k, and even Beethoven and serves as an invisible thread in the quilt of European and Middle Eastern musical traditions. This is an astonishing glimpse of a culture carried in the musical brilliance of a forgotten people. --Derek Rath
Road of the Gypsies is a compilation of 32 Tracks of different artists from different countries, from Egypt to Spain, such as: * Camaron * Goran Bregovic * Esma Redzepova * Taraf de Haidouks * Mustafa Kandirali * Kokani Orkestar * Bratsch * Loyko * Yiorgos Mangas * Blehorkestar Bakija Bakic * Pedro Bacan * Istanbul Oriental Ensemble * Musicians of the Nile * and many more... ... a widely spreaded compilation on that genre, a must for all lovers of Tzigane Music. Since their first migration westward, the gypsies, who probably arrived from India well before the year 1000, have made an unceasing contribution to our musical culture. Scapegoats wherever they go, victims of social rejection on the one hand and the romanticised imagery of literature and film on the other, the Rom continue to uphold their traditions, far from our technological and social upheavels, they nurture all the warms, profundity and sense of community of the Orient. | MP3 320 Kbps | Incl.

Karunesh - Secrets of Life

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, December 13, 2006 0 comments
Melodies that touch the heart, rhythms to make you dance, music that spreads the mysteries and magic of various cultures.
Karunesh took an active interest in music during his youth in Germany, back when he was still known as Bruno Reuter. But it wasn't until he was 23 and took a mean spill off his motorbike that Reuter received his epiphany in the form of new age spiritualism. A pilgrimage to India followed, where he reemerged as Karunesh (Sanskrit for "compassion"). He issued his debut LP, Sounds of the Heart, in 1984, and never looked back. Karunesh was remarkably consistent over the next 20 years, releasing numerous albums influenced by the windy landscape of world music and punctuated with breathy flutes, introspective guitars, and hints of vocal and electronics. He worked with the Nightingale, Oreade, Etherean, and Real Music imprints, among others; album highlights include Heart Chakra Meditation (1992), Secrets of Life (first issued in 1996), and 2001's Zen Breakfast, which leaned toward the new age subgenre of music for massage/relaxation. ~ Johnny Loftus, All Music Guide

Govi - Andalusian Nights

Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, December 12, 2006 3 comments
Andalusian Nights is an exquisite adventure into the land of intrigue, passion and sweet persuasion. Incorporating the sparks of "New Flamenco," the flair of Latin rhythms and the allure of Gypsy guitar styles, Govi's melodies are warm, sensual, rare and ultimately irresistible.
Convincing proof that success follows its own path, Govi's life is one of many twists. He is a German-born musician who traveled to India before settling down in California and becoming a leading proponent of the nouveau flamenco genre anchored by Ottmar Liebert, Johannes Linstead, and others. On ANDALUSIAN NIGHTS, Govi collaborates with two other German New Age stalwarts, Anugama and Karunesh, to come up with the arrangements. ANDALUSIAN NIGHTS opens with the warm atmospheres of "Persuasion," the low bass murmurs and hand drums offset by Govi's delicate finger picking. "Rumba Tumba" and the brisk title track build in intensity, adopting the rapid, flamenco-style clapping strongly associated with the Gipsy Kings' most danceable tunes.
