This is Riad & Takht's second release with City Hall Records. Nationally and internationally acclaimed composer and virtuoso violinist Riad Abdel-Gawad and his ensemble from Cairo perform on all of the main, and together rarely-heard, Middle Eastern ethnic instruments. 15 Tracks and 71 minutes of original instrumental compositions and improvisations that is cutting-edge Middle Eastern music with deep roots in purely Arabic-Egyptian music. The music seamlessly fashions classical, jazz and Sufi styles. This second release has the addition of acoustic standup bass and has added bongos and Upper Egyptian percussion. The music is scintillating, meditative, and joyful.
