Album Notes
This is a historical recording of Middle Eastern music on a reconstructed qanun (Egyptian psaltery) and percussion instruments using fish and goad skin. The aim is to recreate as authentically as possible the sound of a bygone era, that is, 17th- to early 20th-century instrumental music.

"A landmark in historical recording." Dr. Eckhard Neubaeur, Institute for the History of Arabic-Islamic Science, J. W. Goethe University, Frankfurt, Germany

"Dr. Sawa's music takes me back in time to when recordings were sensible. I love listening to the layers of melodies and dancing the subtleties of this beautiful masterpiece. I can't wait to hear the next one!" Bozenka, Bellydance Superstar based in Miami, Florida
