Album Notes
The music of the khaleej (common term used to describe the Arabian Gulf) is famous for its laid-back feel and distinguished sense of swing, which is a trait not found in the music of the rest of the Middle East.
Jazz and khaliji music have so much in common due to their shared ancestral African polyrhythm and therefore merging both worlds together was more like connecting two distant family members.

• “Trailblazing pianist transforms Khaleeji music.” — CNN
• “Inspired by the common black roots of Khaleeji music and jazz, weaves refined cadences.” — La Libération
• “Arabic modes run in his fingers as much as jazz, his playground... a remarkable rhythmic tonicity.” — Le Monde
• “Luminous music anchored in jazz harmony and in Arab traditions. No kitsch postcards here, but a joyous and thoughtful
vision. ” — Télérama
• “A world-jazz heard nowhere else that rocks and airs our eardrums.” — TSF Jazz
