DESCRIPTION
 

King Ghazi is Shadi Khries and Gilbert Cohen.
Recorded in Amman / May 2014.

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 of​exploring 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).

I want to specially thank Shermine Sawalha for allowing us to record in the living room of her parents' house, as well as for coordinating the whole project. Without her energy and patience, this record would not be in your hands today.

Also, many thanks to Ali Hamad Zalabia, who welcomed us to his camp in the desert at Wadi Rum, one of the most beautiful places that I have ever had the chance to see...

Thanks to everyone who supported us in Jordan.
