A little information

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I would normally never presume to review a CD when there are so many knowledgeable reviewers of any given musical genre about - however, as there is no other review of this CD, I'll pass on a bit about it. Most of the pieces were written by Fawzy Al-Aiedy, a couple of them instrumentals, some traditional Iragi songs, a couple are traditional Egyptian. Most of the music is very evocative and languid. I had to listen to the CD a few times before I liked it, but now as I listen to it, I imagine myself poling a flat-bottomed boat over still water in the failing light of a hot Eastern sun (as shown on the cover photo!). Probably you'd have to be a real fan of this genre (which is I suppose quite traditionally Iraqi) in order for the CD to become one of your favorites, but still very interesting. Hope this helps."
