Arabized is the antidote to westernization in traditional music. Native Egyptian Karim Nagi performs anthemic European, Pan-Asian & Latino melodies with Arabic rhythm, instumentation, intonation, and delivery. The result is a musical Mash of Civilization.

Album Notes
The newest CD by Karim Nagi is as much a commentary as it is music. After 20 years of performing Arab and World music, Nagi confronts westernization, and offers an antidote. ARABIZED is an exploration into the East's ability to affect other music and culture. In "Spring Arabized", "Barber of Saudia", and "Mozart Tabla Arabiyya" Karim Nagi adds rhythms, new intonations, and performance dynamics to the European classics of Vivaldi, Rossini and Mozart. He creates a natural breed between Mexican and Arabic cockroaches in "MexicArab". He travels pan-Eastern for the Shanghai melody of "Raqs Yao". He adds extra slang and slink to "Low Rider" by War. He ignites the shoulders and shrills of a Bedouin-Bhangra wedding in "Nedda Nedda". And he offers the 7 part melodic homage to the Egyptian 2011 Revolution in "Flying Heavy for Egypt". ARABIZED uses transnational music to make a single message of tolerance and unity. This is not a conflict, this is the Mash of Civilizations !!
