Abraham Salman – Saltana

Posted By White Rose On Sunday, June 30, 2013 0 comments
Abraham Salman is the greatest living master of the Arabic Qanoun & Arabic instrumental improvisations - the Taqassim.
Born in Iraq in 1931. His youthful talent was discovered upon joining the Royal Iraqi Radio Orchestra where he was the principal qanoun player. Salman gained respect and recognition across the Arab world and accompanied renowned Arabic singers such as Muhammad Abd Al-Muttalib, Nazem Al-Gazali and Sou'ad Muhammad during thier performances in Iraq.
In 1950 Salman emigrated to Israel and worked with the Arabic orchestra of the Israeli radio until 1988. During these years he became so prominent a figure in the orchestra that it is equated with his name. In addition to being a virtuoso performer Salman has composed instrumental music, film music, and recorded Western classical music. This cd is a retrospective of the work of this great artist over the past 35 years and includes both old recordings made by the Israeli radio since the 60th (selected by Avshalom Farjun) together with new recordings from 1996. It chronicles a remarkable musical journey of a master of the Qanoun.
" Abraham Salman is a genius in the true sense of the word, with a musical personality comprising a spectrum of astonishing diverse characteristics. He has achieved both versatility and expertise in the theory, history and performance of Arabic music. he is a master of the intricacies of the Arabic maqamat and has perfect control of the technique required by the qanoun. The hallmarks of his work are xtraordinary sensitivity, spirituality and etherelity. His sophistication in modulation among the maqamat is unique and displays his special creativity andunbridled imagination.
In the performance of Taqasim (improvisations) Abraham Salman is undoubtedly a towering figure throughout th Middle East"

Global Soul

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, June 26, 2013 0 comments
This album is a collection of contemporary Soul and R&B from around the world. The music is good for listening and the beats are good for dancing. Most of the artists are African Diaspora living in Europe, Africa, and South America. The same kind of quality and innovation international artists like Alpha Blondie bring to Reggae, these artists are bringing to soul. I particularly like 'Kaissa' from Cameroon and 'China' from France.
This is 'Globalization' at its best!

Calypso: Vintage Songs from the Caribbean

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, June 26, 2013 0 comments
Calypso: Vintage Songs from the Caribbean
This admirable compilation concentrates on recordings from the '50s, when the toothsome melodies, infectious rhythms, and bawdy double-entendres of calypso and related West Indian styles were on the verge of becoming an international craze. Fun fact: at the height of his popularity, Harry Belafonte was outselling Elvis Presley! However, the tunes on this set are far more authentic than "Day-O." Most of the material comes from the Bahamas, but there are also flying visits to Trinidad, Jamaica, and Grenada. George Simonette's ragtime-inflected "Touch Me Tomato," Mighty Sparrow's "No More Rocking and Rolling," and Lord Shorty's "Kim" are as uproarious as they are danceable. Meanwhile, Calypso Mama comes across as a deadpan Bahamian blues woman on the ribald "Yes, Yes, Yes." Despite the vintage sound quality, these mellow, mischievous tunes are delightful listening from start to finish.

Asian Groove

Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, June 25, 2013 0 comments
Putumayo Presents: Asian Groove
Somewhere along the line, the term "oriental" became politically incorrect. The term was in no way derogatory -- it simply referred to people from what used to be called the Orient (China, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, and Thailand), just as the term "Scandinavian" is applied to people from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland. But the language police took a disliking to the word (without justification), and now, the word Asian is generally applied to those who are from what was once known as the Orient. So when one sees the title Asian Groove, it is logical to assume that Putumayo means Asian as in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean, but Putumayo actually means Asian as in Indian and Pakistani. There are plenty of excellent compilations of traditional Indian and Pakistani music, but Asian Groove is totally modern in its outlook -- most of the artists combine Indian or Pakistani elements with modern funk, dance-pop, electronica, or reggae. Technically, the contemporary Indian and Pakistani pop sounds that dominate this rewarding compilation are indeed Asian grooves, but infectious tracks like Bally Sagoo's "Noorie" and A.S. Kang's "Terian Gulabi Buliyan" have more in common with Turkish, Jewish, or Greek pop than they do with the pop sounds that are coming out of Japan, China, or Korea. And that's because Indian and Pakistani music -- like Turkish, Greek, Armenian, Jewish, Syrian, or North African music -- involves what is called modal playing. Those who aren't professional musicians may not know the technical meaning of the word modal, but they'll be able hear the parallels between Asian Groove and collections of Turkish pop or Algerian rai. Karmix's "Sabhyata," in fact, combines Indian and Algerian elements. Asian Groove doesn't have anything to do with Chinese or Japanese pop, but it's a lively, enjoyable survey of contemporary Indian and Pakistani sounds. ~ Alex Henderson, All Music Guide

American Folk

Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, June 25, 2013 0 comments

Putumayo is primarily a world music label; whether the focus is Celtic, African, Middle Eastern, Caribbean, or Latin music, the vast majority of Putumayo's compilations have had some type of world music connection. But American Folk is an exception -- and while this compilation doesn't unearth the sort of delightfully unorthodox things Putumayo has a way of finding (such as Scottish and Japanese artists playing salsa), it is a disc that isn't lacking when it comes to quality. As its title suggests, this 46-minute, 12-track CD spotlights American folk recordings -- specifically, American folk-rock recordings of the '90s and 2000s. Instead of getting into folkies who made their mark in the '50s or '60s, American Folk sets out to demonstrate that folk-rock is alive and well in the 21st century -- and many of the artists are people who emerged in the '80s, '90s, or 2000s, including Patty Griffin, Lucy Kaplansky, Shannon McNally, Josh Ritter, Christine Kane, and Nanci Griffith (who shines on an intimate remake of Bob Dylan's "Boots of Spanish Leather"). Natalie Merchant, meanwhile, is in fine form on her 2003 recording of the traditional "Owensboro," which favors a sparer and more stripped-down approach than most of her recordings with 10,000 Maniacs or her 1995 solo debut Tigerlily. Given Putumayo's history of being ultra-adventurous, it wouldn't have been surprising if they had come up with something by artists who are really pushing the folk-rock envelope (such as Adam Brodsky and Deirdre Flint, two Philadelphia-based anti-folk/folk-rock artists known for their madcap, over-the-top humor). But while American Folk isn't as daring as other Putumayo releases, it's still a worthwhile, engaging disc that paints an attractive picture of folk-rock in the 21st century. ~ Alex Henderson, All Music Guide

Latin Playground

Posted By MiOd On Monday, June 24, 2013 0 comments
One of the earlier additions to Putumayo's children's line, Latin Playground alternates between catering to children through music specifically for them and enriching the album with works that happen to be playful but were not necessarily made with children in mind. While this one is a little less adult-friendly than some of the others in the line, it still has enough variety to last for a good series of inevitable replays at the hands of kids. The album runs around the Latin spectrum quite well, taking in Mayan-language music from Lila Downs as easily as Flaco Jimenez's brand of Tejano. American folk with a mild Mexican influence is here, as is some forro from Nazare Pereira. The breadth of styles is quite something, and though the explorations are not particularly deep, that is certainly not a major detraction for a kids' album. Some of the other albums in the Putumayo kids' line may have a little more depth, but this one isn't bad at all, and can draw from the label's considerable expertise in Latin music at the same time. ~ Adam Greenberg, All Music Guide

Oriental cafe

For those with an interest in modern Middle Eastern music, here is an excellent introductory disc to the music that people there (and all over the eastern hemisphere) listen to today. The nature of the singing is traditionally aramaic, but the distinctive chanting styles have a backdrop of electronic instruments using the same phrases and cadences that are played on traditional instruments. The tracks with many of these tracks is that they have a thoroughly western bent. While their nature is 'eastern', the dressing is 'western'. Artists include Alabina, Zehava Ben, Cheb Tarik, Ishtar, Farid, Salim Halali and many others.

Manolo Sanlucar - Recital de Flamenco

Posted By MiOd On Sunday, June 23, 2013 0 comments
Manuel Muñoz Alcón. Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Cadiz), 1943. Guitarist. His first teacher was his father, Isidro Sanlúcar, a baker and old style guitarist, who frequently came home with people who were fond of cante and playing; from his childhood he was exceptionally skilled to follow in his steps. His brothers also decided on the same vocation and, among them, Isidro. However, those who had the greatest influence on his beginnings, as he declared himself, were Niño Ricardo and Diego el del Gastor. The former due to his sensitivity, his fundamental contribution to the flamenco guitar, his playing that was so impregnated with feeling, and the latter for his really old air ... While he learned, he worked at the bakery with his father, until he was fourteen, when he began to act professionally in the company of Pepe Marchena. He was not yet thirty when he was considered at the height of his career, due to the publication in 1972 of his recorded anthology Mundo y formas de la guitarra flamenca.

He soon began to research, aware that the guitar had infinite possibilities that had hardly been explored. The most ambitious of his contributions to the art is his constant striving to integrate flamenco in symphonic music. Several works of the greatest interest which have placed his name among the great composers of our time, encourage this concern by the creator: Fantasía para guitarra y orquesta, Trebujena, Medea and Soleá - that toured the world as a ballet -, Tauromagia or Aljibe. Some of them were recorded. The guitarist explained his guiding intentions: "I wish the experts in universal music to understand that they may approach flamenco, so they do not consider it something tribal and topical, so they see a branch of music in flamenco that allows very profound musical analysis and has extraordinary poetic and musical quality". Going into the same problem, he declared on an nother occasion: "Flamenco is a philosophy, the way of thinking and feeling of a whole people and its historical tradition. That is why I feel the need to tell more things about flamenco with other sounds and I take to the orchestra and try to get the orchestra to play siguiriyas, but take note, not for the orchestra to accompany siguiriyas and a singer, but for the orchestra to take on the feeling of the flamenco and, as if it were a sole instrument, to tell that spirit and magic sound of flamenco". Manolo Sanlúcar also composed a sort of flamenco opera on an idea by Lebrijano, to be played on the stage, although it has not yet been produced: Ven y sígueme. He has performed in some films.

Fanfare Ciocarlia - Baro Biao: World Wide Wedding

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, June 19, 2013 0 comments
Baro Biao - World Wide Wedding is the second album released by Romanian twelve-piece Roma brass band Fanfare Ciocărlia. The album was recorded 1999 at Studio Electrocord in Bucarest, Romania, and mixed at Powerplay in Berlin, Germany. Producers are Henry Ernst and Helmut Neumann. The album was released 1999 by Piranha Musik.
Fanfare Ciocârlia is a popular twelve-piece Roma brass band from the northeastern Romanian village of Zece Prăjini. The band began as a loose assemblage of part-time musicians playing at local weddings and baptisms. In October 1996, the German sound engineer and record producer Henry Ernst visited Zece Prajini and convinced a number of the musicians there to assemble a touring band. These musicians decided to name the band Fanfare Ciocârlia: Fanfare being a French word that has passed into Romanian and is used to designate a brass band; Ciocârlia being the Romanian word for the skylark.[1] Since their discovery by Ernst, who serves as their manager, they have played more than thousand concerts in more than 50 countries across the globe.

With historical roots in Austrian and Turkish military bands, Fanfare Ciocârlia's instrumental lineup includes trumpets, tenor and baritone horns, tubas, clarinets, saxophones, bass drum and percussion. Their song lyrics are usually either in Romani or Romanian. Their musical style stems primarily from the traditions of Roma and Romanian folk dance music, but they also borrow freely from Turkish, Bulgarian, Serbian and Macedonian musical styles, and they incorporate a number of tunes gleaned from international radio, Hollywood and Bollywood in their broad repertoire as well. They are best known for a very fast, high-energy sound, with complex rhythms and high-speed, staccato clarinet, saxophone and trumpet solos, sometimes performed at more than 200 beats per minute.[2] They are also known for using no sheet music in their performances, sometimes randomly blasting their horns and clarinets in the middle of a song, and for playing old, battered instruments onstage.

The band won the BBC Radio 3 World Music Award for Europe in 2006. Their latest release is entitled Queens and Kings.

The band plays a cover version of "Born to Be Wild" in the film Borat.

Estrella Morente - Calle Del Aire

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, June 19, 2013 0 comments
'Calle del aire' shows, once again, that the quality of the voice of Estrella Morent is totally out of question. Her maturity and sensibility make this new flamenco record a unique piece that only and extraordinary cantaor can match. Having waited for so long for her debut, it comes as a surprise the release of two albums in one year. Calle del Aire is a an album with a Christmas flair made up of eleven popular songs and a 'present' that have been adapted by Estrella's father and musical mentor, legendary singer Enrique Morente.
'Calle del Aire' is far more than a mere Christmas carol album, since it has a lot of flamenco with two secret tricks: the sweet and delicate voice of Estrella and the unmistakable Morente seal. The first track has Chano Dominguez on the piano and belongs to some themes that Enrique Morente composed for Yerma, a famous García Lorca play. It was Laura García Lorca, a poet's niece, who introduced the Morentes to this carols, and Estrella performs it with sweetness, flirting with the cante. The album also includes the song “Los cuatro muleros”, a popular tune that Lorca unearthed which rises to new heights with Estrella's rendition.
There are also the Albaicín party cantes like the eponymous "Calle del Aire" y "Salve gitana del Sacromonte". There are two signals of the Jerezans tendencies of this woman from Granada: the bulería "Tabanco" and "Bulería por soleá". There is a version Jonda of "Silent Night" (Noche de Paz), which acts like a warning in this war times we're living through. The lyrics of this song have been modified by Enrique Morente, and José Manuel Cañizares is to be found on the flamenco guitar accompanying the Cantaora. The album has traditional song that are normally heard while tasting aniseed drinks, like the Castillian tonada 'Que quieres que te traiga, que voy a Burgos' and 'Caracol', the latter of which was sung by Encarna, Estrella's grandma. The Sefardí tune 'Tangos del Chavico', the album's first single, has a contagious rhthm and is sung by the Morente family on their Christmas gatherings.
The album rounds up with 'Regalo de Navidad' (Christmas present), called so because it's considered it was a present from Maestro Sabicas to Estrella when she was only seven years old, and was already a promising star. Sabicas sang a taranta to the girl and she replied singing another one. Journalist José Manuel Gamboa captured that moment on tape so that we can still enjoy it.

Jardin de Myrtes: Mélodies andalouses du Moyen-Orient

Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, June 18, 2013 0 comments
L'ensemble Aromates / Michèle Claude
Jardin de Myrtes: Mélodies andalouses du Moyen-Orient
Arab-Andalousian poems performed by an ensemble of Middle Eastern string instruments fuses modern harmony with twelve traditional Arabic classical muwashsha songs. An eclectic group of singers and instrumentalists trained in a variety of schools, perform on traditional instruments.

Michèle Claude, a master of Middle Eastern string instruments, fuses modern harmony with twelve traditional Arabic classical muwashsha songs. The muwashsha (an Arabic word meaning 'ornamented') originated in Muslim Spain over a millennium ago and are comparable to the songs of the medieval European troubadours and trouvères. The fusion of modern harmony over the traditional basso ostinato of these strophic songs fuses tradition with modernity and virtuoso musicianship from an eclectic group of singers and instrumentalists trained in a variety of schools, performing on traditional instruments.

Musicians:

Carlos Paredes – Movimento Perpétuo

Posted By MiOd On Monday, June 17, 2013 1 comments
The Portuguese guitar is a 12-string instrument with double courses (string pairs) and a small body, similar in tone to the mandolin or Greek bouzouki. Its penetrating sound is championed by Carlos Paredes, a sensitive, even shy performer who balances tradition and spontaneous invention. His original approach was likened to the freshness of Ornette Coleman by bassist Charlie Haden, who is himself a minor cultural hero in Portugal. ~ Myles Boisen, All Music Guide

Azzddine& Bill Laswell - Massafat

Posted By MiOd On Monday, June 17, 2013 0 comments
Billed as Azzddine on the 2004 album Massafat (which is actually credited to Azzddine with Bill Laswell), Azzddine is Azzddine Ouhnine, a Moroccan oud player and composer based in Rabat. The Switzerland-based Label, which specializes in cross-cultural collaborations between African and European/American musicians, decided to produce a CD with him on the basis of a lo-fi recording of one of his live shows. On Massafat, Ouhnine's vocals, oud, and darbukka were combined with contributions by about a dozen other musicians on violins, keyboards, background singing, programming, and drums. The most noted of the additional players was bassist Bill Laswell, who contributed bass to eight of the 14 tracks, although he was initially asked just to play on one or two of the selections. The final product combines traditional Moroccan music with aspects of electronic dance music, rap, and dub reggae.

A. R. Rahman - Vande Mataram (Feat. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan)

Posted By MiOd On Monday, June 17, 2013 0 comments
"Vande Mataram" became a Sanskit rallying cry for freedom in the early 1900s, as Indians protested against the partitioning of Bengal and its use as the title for the first international release by Ar Rahman, one of India's most popular contemporary recordings artists, is appropriate. Vande Mataram was released to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of India's independence from colonial Britain and it also was designed to introduce the western world, particularly the United States, the wonders of modern Indian music and culture. Rahman is a clever, skilled composer and for this record, he blends Indian music with worldbeat, new age and light dance music, creating an accessible amalgam that nevertheless sounds exotic. He's also enlisted Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, David Byrne, Zakir Hussain, Talvin Singh, L. Shankar and Apache Indian as guest artists, which gives Vande Mataram a richer scope and a broader appeal. The end result is a vibrant, exciting album that has the potential to reach beyond the traditional world music fan. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

The Soul Of Cape Verde

Posted By MiOd On Monday, June 17, 2013 0 comments
This 19-song compilation features a wide variety of artists from this small but influential island off the Senegalese coast. Opening with Cesaria Evora and an early tune, "Papa Joachim Paris," the album visits luminaries like Simentera, Paulino Vieira, and Tito Paris and introduces you to many less famous but deserving names. Real roots come from the Mindel Band with a raw violin and a perpetual groove. Luis Morais's band is jazzy and fun. Voz de Cabo Verde are sweet and homey. The album closes with a live, lush, yet ragged "Lundum" by Vieira and Celina Pereira, a perfect island tune of slight melody and lots of feeling.

Taj Mahal & Toumani Diabate - Kulanjan

Posted By MiOd On Sunday, June 16, 2013 0 comments

Perennial blues road warrior Taj Mahal and Malian kora (harp-lute) ambassador Toumani Diabate join forces, blend textures, and intermingle idioms on this cleanly produced 12-song set, recorded in 1998 in Athens. Their common ground is best tilled on "Atlanta Kaira" and the title track, where the plucky filigrees and glittering tone of the kora sound right at home with Taj's darker, barking National Reso-Phonic steel. "Ol' Georgie Buck" and their canny cover of Muddy Waters's "Catfish Blues" are the album's blues banners, which find Diabate's kora delightfully incongruous, while the walking African ballad "Tunkaranke" leans most heavily toward the motherland. Fleshed out with fine vocals by Taj, Kasse Mady Diabate, and Malian chanteuse Ramata Diakate ("Queen Bee"), and other African instruments, the sound is defiantly acoustic, intimate, and surprisingly true.

Like the 1997 release Sacred Island, Kulanjan sees Taj Mahal blending the blues with ethnic folk music. While the earlier album explored the music of Hawaii, however, here Taj and the Malian kora player Toumani Diabate seek to reveal the connections between the blues and the music of Western Mali.

And these connections are apparent from the opening cut, a new version of Taj's "Queen Bee". Diabate's kora - plucked, according to the excellent sleeve notes, using a technique similar to the finger-thumb style of guitar playing Taj learned from earlier blues masters - drives this pretty, country blues while Ramatou Diakite's honeyed vocals on her improvised Wasulunke lyrics perfectly complement Taj's distinctive, gravelly voice. Other tracks that come from the blues, rather than the Malian, tradition are just as successful. Taj and Diabate's take on the traditional "Ol' Georgie Buck" sounds like the only way to play this song after just one listen. Curiously, this cut reminds me of Led Zeppelin's early '70s attempts to fuse their Willie Dixon-influenced electric blues with English folk ("Gallows Pole", "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp" and "The Battle of Evermore"), which either shows one of the many wonderful, hidden connections between the musics of the world, or that I'm losing my mind. "Catfish Blues", meanwhile, is the album's purest blues in form, yet it is Diabate's retuned kora that lifts the song far above the hundreds like it.

The Malian cuts sound, perhaps only to this untrained ear, mostly like straight West-African folk music. Connections between the two traditions are still apparent here, however. "Fanta" takes the Malian tradition of the praise song and renders it as an infectious Cajun blues, sung in French by Taj and dedicated to Diabate's wife. And "Guede Man Na", although a million miles from the blues in form, has the heartfelt sadness of great blues music.

Ultimately, though, deciding which of the album's tracks can be termed as 'blues' and which are 'Malian' is a fairly pointless exercise. Taj and Diabate effortlessly fuse elements of both musics, and in Kulanjan they have produced a superb release that succeeds on its own terms.

La Banda Municipale De Santiago De Cuba Vol.1&2

Posted By MiOd On Sunday, June 16, 2013 1 comments
The Banda Municipal de Santiago de Cuba is a brass band which remains true to the tradition of the Cuban brass band.

La Banda Municipale De Santiago De Cuba 1

This debut record confirms that the time has come to discover another side of Cuban music, socially very rooted in its folk culture and in the history of its liberation.

La Banda Municipale De Santiago De Cuba 2


This album "Brassband from Cuba II', like the Banda Municipal de Santiago de Cuba, is a family and friend production and story. The imaginative world of its music is 100% Santiagero: orthodox fans of horns and reeds should not take offense at the diversion from musical scores, the looped barrel organs, or the children's voices from the black district of San Pedro-- where the shadow of La Cumparsa De Los Oyas still brings to mind the history of slave gatherings in huge colonial plantations.
Released in 2001 on Buda.

Best of Khaled

Posted By MiOd On Sunday, June 16, 2013 0 comments
Khaled is the poster boy for the modern form of Algerian desert blues known as Raï. Certainly he's been its most successful modern exponent, the first to find success on the international stage. Born Khalidu Hajji Brahim in Oran, the traditional center of Raï, he was attracted to music from an early age, especially to Raï, which was seen at the time of the music of outcasts, drunks, and prostitutes, although he also loved James Brown and the Beatles. He taught himself to play guitar, bass, harmonica, and accordion, releasing his debut disc, "Trigh Lycee," when he was just 14. Leaving home, he began on the peripatetic life of the musician, performing frequently at clubs, parties, and weddings (the only places where Raï was seen as an "acceptable" form of entertainment). It was in the early '80s that Cheb (meaning "young") Khaled's fortunes changed, when he met up with producer Rachid Baba Ahmed, who was revolutionizing the Raï form by introducing Western electric instruments and studio techniques. Together, they changed the face of the music. Khaled was the right voice at the right time and the addition of drum machines, synthesizers, and guitars took the music to a new generation, even though much of it continued to be censored by the Algerian government, which considered the style subversive. A number of those early tracks can be found on Le Meilleur de Cheb Khaled on Blue Silver. By 1986, Khaled (who'd now dropped the Cheb) had been forced to move to Paris, as violence in Algeria claimed lives and he'd been threatened several times (producer Ahmed would, in fact, be murdered, as would several Raï performers). Arriving with a reputation, he attempted to take his music to a global level, although his real debut, Kutche, did him no favors with its jazz-rock arrangements. He fared much better with 1992's Khaled, with some tracks produced by Michael Brook and others by Don Was. It yielded his first big hit, "Didi," and helped consolidate his reputation as Raï's first superstar. That was firmly cemented the following year with the Was-produced N'ssi N'ssi, which mixed funk, rock, and an Egyptian orchestra behind Khaled's persuasive voice and winning smile for a major commercial breakthrough in France, winning a European, as well as North African, audience. In 1996, he hit again with Sahra, whose first single, "Aïcha," written for his daughter, gave Khaled a French number one hit. A mix of producers gave varying sounds, with French hip-hoppers Akhenton & Imhotep proving the hardest on the track "Oran Marseille" with its rapid-fire rap. There was even some reggae on "Mektoubi," which merged relatively seamlessly with the North African sound. While well-received critically, it sold little in the U.S. however, unlike France, where the album became Khaled's biggest success. Perhaps the moment that justified his title of King of Raï, however, came in 1999, when he headlined the 1-2-3 Soleils concert in Paris (which led to the album of the same name), over Rachid Taha and Faudel. It was the biggest Algerian show ever staged in France and left no doubt that Khaled remained Raï's hottest attraction. 2000 brought Kenza and a change of producer, as former prog rocker Steve Hillage helped bring a more organic feel to the proceedings. A smash in Europe, once again it did little business in the U.S. ~

Ibn ‘Arabi - El intérprete de los deseos

Posted By MiOd On Saturday, June 15, 2013 0 comments
Ibn 'Arabí (Murcia 1165 - Damasco 1240) - Taryumán al-Ashwáq
El intérprete de los deseos - Interpreter of desires - L'interprète des désirs Ensemble Ibn Báya & Cofradía Shushtari, Omar Metioui & Eduardo Paniagua.
This is a most usual recording, fruit of the collaboration of a Spanish specialist in the musical traditions of Medieval Spain, a Moroccan Arabo-Andalucian musician and a Moroccan Sufi brotherhood with roots stretching back to the medieval Islamic Kingdom of Granada. Though each contributor brings something different to the project, the common ground between them is the musical heritage of Islamic Spain. The result of this collaboration is a marvelous work that recreates the mystical poetry of the great Sufi master Ibn Arabi as a Sufi sama, a sacred concert of music and mystical poetry. Ibn Arabi was born in 1165 on the Iberian peninsula in the region that is today Murcia in southeastern Spain, then part of Islamic Spain. Leaving Al-Andalus as a young man, Ibn Arabi traveled extensively in the Mediterranean basin. He continues to be one of the most highly revered of Sufi thinkers and poets, and in recent years he has become better known to the West through biographies and translations of his prose and poetry into numerous European languages. Everything about this production is sumptuous. The CD cover and extensive, well-written and highly informative accompanying booklet are illustrated with illuminations from a medieval Arabic manuscript. A concise introduction to Sufism and Ibn Arabi and his poetic work, The Interpreter of Desires, leads into a discussion of the recording and the text selection. Whether one is well versed in Ibn Arabi and Sufism or is an open-minded newcomer, the liner notes are well chosen and extremely useful in orienting the listener. Unlike most recordings of a Sufi musical concert (sama) which are simply casual documents of a meeting of dervishes and the rites and ceremonies of their particular order, this work is carefully structured specifically for the individual listener separate in time and space from the ceremony. Special music, recitations, prayers and poems help draw the listener into the sacred space of Ibn Arabi’s poems as interpreted in traditional manner by dervishes of the Shushtari Order, supported by professional Arabo-Andalucian musicians. Modes, that in this musical system evoke different emotional states, are married to the texts to heighten their emotional impact. Sufi zikr--special rhythmic chants and breathing practices that create a heightened state of spiritual remembrance in the participants--are often deployed beneath the poetry, which may be sung in chorus by the brotherhood or by soloists unfurling highly ornamented and beautifully sung passages on top of the insistent zikr. Each of the two main sections of the work slowly but surely builds to a musical and mystical climax. All the power of over a millennium of Sufi sacred ritual and Andalusí classical music tradition is combined to produce a work of tremendous spiritual power and intense beauty. The selection of the poetry, the structure of the recording, the pacing of the ceremony, the quality of the musicians and soloists, and the extraordinary beauty of Ibn Arabi’s poetry combine to produce a work of the highest order. Listen to Ibn Arabi’s Interpreter of Desires with open heart and mind, and prepare to be ravished.

Beihdja Rahal - La Nouba MEZMOUM

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, June 12, 2013 0 comments
Behdja Rahal, une voix raffinée...
Behdja Rahal, a fine voice ... Beihja Rahal comes from a middle artistic, but it is the only one to have made a career in music, a genre in particularly difficult and selective: Andalusian singing. In fact, the practice of this art requires both a great dexterity to handle the instrument-one it has chosen, kouitra, a former Algerian typically, is especially difficult to control and a voice-perfect. She continued her musical education with the great masters of the Arab-Classicism: The best known were Abderrezak Fakhardji, Mohamed Khaznadji and Zoubir Karkachi. Bahja Rahal, who now 40 years old, singing since the age of 12 years. Recognizing dominate an art where very few women excellent, it decided a decade ago to make a career. The singer has completed a painstaking work, that to embark on the registration of twelve noubas remaining Andalusian heritage.

A bet, a priori, succeeded because thanks to his professionalism and his determination, it remains today the singer Andalusian the most listened and most appreciated. It is surrounded by some musicologists and seasoned musicians for the recording of his nine noubas. This pure happiness for two hours was obtained Beihdja Rahal to his fans is only part remission since, in a few months, it will present the tenth nouba Raml Maya. In his concerts, at the earliest musical notes, the spirits escape in enjoying this beautiful music millennium. With his voice caressing and refined Beihdja Rahal made praises to the Creator and his prophets with emotion. Side orchestra, it abandoned the crowded orchestras in vogue in recent years and returned to training room that leave room for improvisation. Today, Andalusian music is no longer seen as an elitist music, the audience grows by the day. Beihdja Rahal underscores the growing popularity of this music with Algerian youth "nouba was commercial. Proof if any, the various solicitations I receive from my publisher. That means it is much in demand.

Arabo-Andalusian Sufi Songs

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, June 12, 2013 0 comments
While Sufi music is often known for its wild, ecstatic performances, this Moroccan ensemble plays with utmost restraint, building up melodies ever-so slowly and ever-so elegantly. Their repertoire is drawn from the half-lost Anadlusian strain of Sufi folklore that is still heard within the zaouia tradition of Tangiers. Many of these songs follow a pattern similar to some Indian classical performances, starting with slow, unaccompanied vocals, then adding a lightly plucked oud to further establish the melody, and finally bringing in percussion to fill in the sound. This is a gentle, contemplative album, one which may bring renewed rewards to repeat listenings. Recommended!

Among my dozens of Moroccan recordings and various other CDs of Middle Eastern and Inner Asian Sufi music, this one is special. While keeping the flavor of North African Andalusia with instrumentation and vocal style, the slower tempo and quiet passion reaches into the depths of the poetry, much like Turkish and Persian traditions. The ubiquitous Chemirani on percussion adds a further, timeless and more worldly dimension to the performance. The sound quality is excellent. There is wide variety in the selection of pieces, from ensemble to solos, set works and improvisations. You will not be disappointed.

01. Les Coalisés (The Allies)
02. Je Crois en la Religion de l'Amour (I Believe in the Religion of Love)
03. Cet Amour N'est Pas Chose Facile (This Love Is No Easy Matter)
04. L' Amoureux a Accepté Qu'on le Prenne Pour un Fou (The Man in Love ...)
05. Taqsîm au Violon (Taqsim for Violin)
06. S'ils Comprenaient Les Secrets de l'Amour de Leïla (If Only They ...)

Samarpan - Kirwani (Message Of The Birds)

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, June 12, 2013 0 comments
Hariprasad Chaurasia, George Brooks,
Gwyneth Wentink & Vijay Ghate ‎–
Kirwani By Samarpan - Message Of The Birds
Hariprasad Chaurasia (b. 1st July 1938) is known internationally as the greatest living master of the bansuri, the North Indian bamboo flute. Chaurasia is among the small but growing number of classicists who have made a conscious effort to reach out and expand the audience for classical music. He is probably the most accessible Hindustani musician, and has done much to popularise the bansuri and classical music.

Hariprasad Chaurasia was born into a non musical family in Allahabad. His father was a wrestler. His mother died when he was very young. Hariprasad had to learn music almost in secret, scared of the father who wanted him to become a wrestler. First he started learning vocal music from Pt. Rajaram at the age of 15. Later, he switched to playing the flute under the tutelage of Pt. Bholanath of Varanasi. Much later, while working for All India Radio, he received guidance from the reclusive Smt. Annapurna Devi (daughter of Baba Allaudin Khan).

Chaurasia is a rare combination of innovator and traditionalist. He has significantly expanded the expressive possibilities of the bansuri through his masterful blowing technique. He is one of the busiest North Indian classical musicians, regularly travelling and performing throughout the world.

Apart from classical music, he has made a mark as a Hindi-language film-music director along with Shivkumar Sharma, forming a group called Shiv-Hari. He has also collaborated with various world musicians in experimental cross-cultural performances, including the famous fusion group Shakti.
