ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
De Fez a Jerez is the debut CD by Moroccan vocalist Lamiae Naki and flamenco guitarist/oud player Nat Hulskamp. The music features a blend of their varying musical backgrounds - Lyrics are sung in Lamiae's native Arabic language (as well as French and Spanish) with accompaniment on oud (an Arabic lute), flamenco guitar, Persian sehter and kamancheh, bass, cajón, and palmas (flamenco hand claps).

The album features five songs recorded in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain in collaboration with legendary flamenco artists such as Tomasa La Macanita, Diego del Morao and Luís de Periquín. Five other songs were recorded in Portland, OR with Persian multi instrumentalist Bobak Salehi, renowned bassists Damian Erskine and Bill Athens and virtuoso percussionist Manavihare Fiaindratovo.

About Seffarine:
Seffarine is a duo formed by Moroccan singer Lamiae Naki and oud player/flamenco guitarist Nat Hulskamp. Their repertoire varies from classical Arabic and Andalusian music to original compositions influenced by the music of widely varying cultures, such as Spanish flamenco, classical Persian music, and American jazz. Seffarine takes its name from the ancient metalworking square in Lamiae's home city of Fes, Morocco. Her family is well known in the Seffarine as master metalworkers continuing the tradition today. The square dates back to the 9th century and is famous for the complex rhythms that can be heard from the blacksmiths' hammers.

Great CD!
This CD is on equal footing with many of my favorite CDs from Spain. Every track is unique and compelling, covering a wide range of feelings and instruments. The atmosphere is authentic, complete with palmas and jaleos! This is due to half of the CD being recorded in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain - with top tier Spanish Artists. Seffarine's music is a wonderful fusion of Flamenco, Middle Eastern and Jazz influences. It's hard to pick a favorite song off this CD, I like them all! Ole and congrats to Seffarine on their debut album...
