Middle East #1 – Ode to the modern oud
The oud is a glorious Arabian string instrument. This album is filled to the brim with celebratory and lively Arabic compositions, where the oud evolves freely. Depending on the tracks, the oud is surrounded by mysterious ethnic flutes, lively ethnic or suspended percussions, aerial or somber pads, warm guitar or piano highlights, delicate strings. At times bouncy, catchy, positive, the compositions can also be evolving, delicate, subtle and sparse. Considered the king, sultan or emir of musical instruments, it belongs to the lute family. These delicate, heartfelt tracks are ideally suited for scenes set in the Arabian world, the Middle East, Arabic content, world travel documentaries, travel scenes, and human documentaries.
