After her debut album "Yalalalli" that's unfortunately not available online, Rima Khcheich releases "Falak" accompanied by the Dutch musicians of the Yuri Honing Jazz Ensemble, among who the awesome double bass player, Tony Overwater.

The album "Falak" is the perfect incarnation of the theory according to which a successful fusion does not spoil nor even alter the spirit of the traditions involved in it. Since words must say it, here it is rigor, charisma, virtuosity, and a genius mix between creativity and faithfulness that best qualify the art of Rima Khcheich - the almost unique representative of the Lebanese and Arab quality music, since Feyrouz.

More in detail, two compositions from Fouad Abdel Mageed catch one's attention: "Harrama el Naouma" and the beautiful "Foutina el Ladhi" that opens on an extract from the artist's recording made when she was twelve. Also worth notice is the remake of the muwashah "Munyati", where Joost Lijbaart's drums deploys a 14 beats rhythm with a stunning palette of sounds. Last but not least is the mawwal "Walaw" composed by the legendary Wadih el Safi, and recorded Live in Théâtre Monot (in Beirut), accompanied by Overwater's double bass alone. Those who had the chance to attend this concert will surely find in this final track the reminiscence of an unforgettable moment.

For the golden voice, and the wonderfully fluid singing, should one wants a single title of what's being produced in today's Lebanese scene, this would undoubtedly be the one.
