BALIGH HAMDI & MAGID KHAN

INDO-ARABIC VARIATIONS

ALT016 (Vinyl LP / Limited Edition Vinyl LP)

Unique fusion of the Indian and Egyptian music cultures devised by Baligh Hamdi, one of the most prominent composers in the Arab-speaking world.

Unique fusion of the Indian and Egyptian music cultures devised by Baligh Hamdi, the most prominent of all modern composers in the Arab-speaking world. Hamdi, who penned dozens of hit compositions for Umm Kulthum, Abdel Halim Hafez, Warda and Sabah amongst others, also shaped the future of Arabic music in a way that’s difficult to overestimate.

Directed by Hamdi, the renowned Indian sitar player Magid Khan joins the Egyptian musicians of Abdel Halim Hafez‘s orchestra in re-reading some of Hamdi‘s compositions from a new perspective – here sitar and tabla dance together with arghoul, ney and other Arabic instruments.

 

An east-meets-east masterpiece in which Hamdi once again pushed the boundaries of Arabic music in his tireless quest for a broader, more global reach.
