ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The group name "Al Qahwa" is Arabic for "the coffee house". It was inspired by the coffee house culture in the old days in the Middle East where people would go to hear the latest news, music, poetry and stories. In 2018, Al Qahwa worked on classic old songs from Egypt, and started including original music by members of the group and the quartet invited 2 guests to join them on this recording. Dr. Alfred Gamil on violin is one of Cairo, Egypt's treasured violinists/composers who is both steeped in tradition and known for his virtuosic, flirtatious creative presence. Meanwhile, in Toronto, Canada, Majd Sukar is a deeply rooted Syrian musician who has adapted the clarinet to Arabic music. A cultural collaboration like this live 2018 CD project is the outcome of our work together.
