ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wisaal is a Mediterranean fusion group based in Lansing, MI. The Arabic word wisaal means links, connections, or unities. This reflects an attempt to fuse elements of the Mediterrenean musical heritage with klezmer, Indian, and American influences. Formed in 2010, Wisaal has continuously developed and refined their music while performing throughout the United States. Their performances have captivated audiences at diverse venues, including Frederik Meijer Gardens (Grand Rapids, MI) the Lotus Festival (Bloomington, IN), Concert of Colors (Detroit, MI), and Global Rhythms (Miami University, OH). Their music has been described as “both engaging and complex, a lively, deeply spiritual tapestry of interwoven influences and melodies, times and cultures.”

Wisaal’s unique style of music draws influences from around the globe. Traditional music from Egypt, Turkey, and Lebanon is infused with klezmer clarinet and folk mandolin. Original tunes and arrangements combine globally influenced melodies with American jazz and classical influences. Wisaal's percussion section features a battery of instruments from the Mediterranean, South America, India, and beyond. This fusion of styles creates a music that transcends musical boundaries. Wisaal's music simultaneously feels exotic yet familiar, fresh and new but deeply rooted in tradition.

Wisaal consists of Igor Houwat (oud), Will Cicola (clarinets/saxophone), Ben Fuhrman (mandolin), Tim Patterson (bass), Ty Forquer (percussion), and Mike List (percussion).
