A great example of music fusion where east meets west!

"This second album by Bustan Abraham is a worthy successor to their debut album in 1992. The group, composed of Israeli Jews and Arabs, provide a largely instrumental album that fuses the music and instruments of the west(flute, violin, guitar and banjo) with that of the east(oud, qanoun, and various percussion)to produce a sound that takes you along with it like a magic carpet. This is an album I never tire of hearing. From the beautiful solo flute introduction in "The Walls of Jericho" to the unusually captivating vocals in "Muwashah," this is a trip one wants to take over and over."

"The artist's name means, in both Hebrew & Arabic, the orchard or garden of Abraham, father of both Jew & Arab. Their music is so vibrant, alive, different from most other "world music" groups around today. I first heard them perform at the festival in Lille, France where we were also appearing with an Israeli-Palestinian production of "Romeo & Juliet". Our whole ensemble went crazy for them. I can't wait for them to release a live concert album."

"This must be the middle-east peace!!!! ..Wonderful ethnic music performance from Israel...Arabic, Turkish,Persian,Indian melodies alltogether..It couldn't be better than this.Especially the percussionist Zohar Fresco shows a splendid musicianship.
I would suggest you to listen to all the albums of this band..The albums by Bustan Abraham named as Hamsa ,Fanar,Ashra are also very good..
They also appeared with very different musicians from all over the world.Such as Ross Daly(with him they have an album called Abadai..excellent!!!!!),Hariprasad Charusia."
