Nawaris (Irak/Fr/Be) - Cd-release 'Bach à Bagdad'

There are some fine life histories that are translated into music, and this is one of them. Don’t look for the lyrics in this fable that spans Belgium and Iraq, because it’s the notes that are better suited to describing the invisible and imaginary world that they seek to share. ‘From Bach to Baghdad’ is Nawaris’s second album; it’s a project put together around Hussein Rassim, an oud player who arrived in Belgium several years ago. He has surrounded himself with a varied group of musicians to present a musical crossroads, where the meeting point stands at the heart of the venture.
