CD Reviews

Trance Ararat ....
krembo | Caulfield South, Victoria Australia | 11/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unlike his first CD's , Silan is not a solo one , with the backup of Al Ol Ensemble (great sound) , Dalal is getting closer to the western eastern oriented music lovers . This rainbow coloured train (you may call it Trance Ararat or Orient ..), takes you all the way from Israel to Turkey , Iran , India and some other exotic places . Each tune takes you to another place , so relax , don't forget your nargila and cup of strong black coffee , the pleasure is all yours ."
A Beautiful and Colourful Masterpiece!
Rizgar | Sweden | 12/01/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

Yair Dalal exemplifies a rare mixture between conflicting trends in music: traditional versus modern, Eastern versus Western and Jewish versus Arabic. He also explores musical traditions of different countries like Iraq, Turkey and India, besides Jewish traditional music. Most of the pieces presented here are of charming beauty and very colourful and great instrumental arrangement.

Although Dalal is not as skillful in playing the violin as in musical composition, his taqsims on the Middle Eastern violin are very haunting. The Al Ol ensemble membres are very skillful players. The recording quality is not perfect, but it is not "bad" - as the previous reviewer sais - either.

I highly recommend this CD for anyone interested in Middle Eastern/Eastern music."
