Description

Recorded in 1990, Barzakh was the ECM debut of Tunisian oud master Anouar Brahem. Now re-released on 180g vinyl after many years' absence in the LP format, it was an album that immediately captured the attention of press and public with its gracefulness and authority. Phenomenalthis is pure Arab music, without world music frippery, wrote Karl Lippegaus in Stereo. Brahem is joined here by Bechir Selmi, the sensitive violinist from the Musical Ensemble of Tunis, and percussionist Lassad Hosni, whose earthy frame drum and speeding darbouka would come to be important components of later Brahem recordings including Conte de lincroyable amour and Astrakan Café. Beyond the improvisatory brilliance, Barzakh gave notice also of Brahems gift for writing arresting themes and luminous melody, as illustrated by Raf Raf, Parfum de Gitane, Kerkenah and other pieces here. Personnel: Anouar Brahem (oud), Bechir Selmi (violin), Lassad Hosni (percussion)
