Farid al-Atrache - Hekayet Gharami Overture

Farid al-Atrache - Hekayet Gharami Overture

فريد الأطرش - إفتتاحية حكاية غرامي

Farid often worried about the decline of the oud in middle-eastern music, his concerns about the dearth of young talent (professional or otherwise) lead him to include an excerpt of Asturias in the overture to his song Hekayet Gharami. His hope was to reinstate the versatility of of the oud even as a lead instrument in classical western compositions.

You can here a solo version of this (with better audio) at 3:49 in this video.

piousblunt-deactivated20111222 asked: since you like oud music. Have you checked out Khyam Allami. Specifically his track called Alif?

I listened to that tune when I first creeped your tumblr, he really is brilliant!

Farid al-Atrache - Taqsim Oud

فريد الأطرش - تقاسيم عود

إذا غنيت فإن الكلمة حزينة، وإذا لحنت فإن النغم أكثر حزنا، وكأن الأغنية كلمة وموسيقى الجسر الوحيد للتعبير عن هذا الحب

Farid al-Atrache - Kelmet Itab

فريد الأطرش - كلمة عتاب 

I quite like this newly granted privilege to upload videos longer than 15 minutes to YouTube, longer songs at higher bit-rates that don’t get bumped off the tumblr servers when they’re not reblogged.

Gazele Music - I'll Wait for You

Gazele Music - I’ll Wait for You

Choice track from Karim Sultan’s soundcloud. A great beat, oud sample and an analogue noisefloor keeps this track warm throughout.

The sample is pulled from ساكن قصادي (Saken Osadi) performed by Najat al Sagheera.
