KING GHAZI presents ABU SAYAH - HOURAN & SHAMALEH

Versatile Records ‎– VER 108

King Ghazi is Shadi Khries and Gilbert Cohen.  All the music presented here is original, and has been recorded in Jordan in May 2014. This project was born when I met Shadi in Paris, at the percussion recording sessions for Acid Arab. From these sessions came the idea oxploring local music styles on the verge of disappearing, in Jordan and elsewhere in the Middle East. It was also an opportunity for me to meet exceptional people and wonderful artists. For 15 days, we travelled through Jordan, recording local musicians. Here we hear Osama Al Khairat aka Abu Sayah, an exiled Syrian musician who plays the Yarghoul (two flutes linked together by beeswax. One plays a drone, the other the corresponding range, all while blowing continuously).
