Synopsis

Album Description
The soulful and spirited music of Beyond the Sky transports the listener to exotic regions of the Mediterranean, Turkey, the Middle East and North Africa. This collaboration brings back the symbiotic duo of Brian Keane and Omar Faruk Tekbilek, along with three other remarkable musicians. Together, they navigate a timeless path of mystery, excitement and energy, dense with the imagery of an ancient landscape. The exceptional interaction of the musicians produce a spontaneous emotion, on both the original pieces they wrote for this recording, and the traditional Middle Eastern melodies they adapted. There is a good deal of improvisation, based on modal and rhythmic cues, updating standard tunes perhaps a thousand years old. Amidst the Middle Eastern harmonies, the listener catches whiffs of Moroccan and even Afro-Cuban styles. Beyond the Sky weaves a Middle Eastern fusion of cultural influences.

"This is a CD that is magical and timeless. This recording will transport you into another world. The musicianship and the recording are both impeccable and you don't have to be a fan of middle eastern music to be moved by this extraorinary recording."
The Eastern thrilling music...it takes you to another world!

"Tekbilek's sublime music has the smooth power of awakening our deepest feelings. It takes us softly to a completely different world, where the magic and pure beauty are still present. Beyond the Sky can translate this through its songs. Check it out!"

"I am an avid fan of world music. This CD contains the most amazing music I have ever heard. It is the kind of music that speaks right to your soul. Track number 3 "Kolaymi" is beautiful. If only I could find a person who could make me feel the way this song does."
