This is a two disc album, first CD contains their electronica editions. The second CD showcases their songs in their traditional acoustic form to better understand the traditional foundations they blended into modern beats.
Mesmerizing voice of Azam Ali combined with Carmen Rizzo’s beats reverberate to make this album a sumptuous celebration of the ethereal. A must play!
A few notes from first disc—
Track 1-“Beni Beni”- folk singing, strong beat and strings—folk dancing music
Track 3- “Feraghi- Song of Exile”-soft beginning, voice of longing, ethereal electronics, 2nd wave passionate banquet celebration music, lost in trance
Track 4- “Ishq-Love and the Veil”-dulcimer, padded beats, addictive beat and melody
Flirtatious flute… Love trance
Track 5- “Allah Mazare” -strings and beat, calling passionately out for something…
