Anouar Brahem

Born:

Anouar Brahem is the oud’s conjuror, an authentic master at bringing out the acoustic magic which this age-old traditional Oriental lute carries inside its calabash: the musical heritage of the Arab and Islamic worlds. Brahem is a phenomenon, a concentrated mix of prolific paradoxes: he is a supremely subversive classicist; a solitary soloist, resolutely open to the world; and a "culture smuggler", a man ever inclined to venture beyond his own limits and push back musical frontiers… without yielding an inch to aesthetic standards forged across time and tempered with deep respect for tradition.

Simin Tander: No Looking Back

Read "Simin Tander: No Looking Back" reviewed by Ian Patterson


When an album receives widespread critical acclaim, generating extensive touring in its wake, the temptation must be to repeat the formula next time around.
