Editorial Reviews

A song series of alluring beauty where complex Levantine rhythms synch up with breezy hints of bossa nova, pounding belly dance beats, and that certain swing found only in jazz with Gaida's velvety, yet crystalline voice, as a common denominator. The songs of Levantine Indulgence unite the elegance of Arabic poetry and the refined ornamentation of traditional vocals with sophisticated urbanite sensibilities.

Format: Audio CD
Syrian singer Gaida, who studied science as well as music in the U.S. and works as a trained speech therapist with both children and professional vocalists, presents Levantine Indulgence, an original album that showcases her wonderful blend of Arabic melodies and jazz-inspired arrangements. Iraqi-American jazz trumpeter and santoor player Amir ElSaffar collaborates with her on several of the inspired songs; also lending their talents to assorted melodies are Adel Hinawi, Arturo Martinez, and Sarah Silbert. A captivating blend of Middle East and West, Levantine Indulgence is an extraordinary addition to world music collections and highly recommended. The tracks are "Dream" (2:14), "Ammar" (3:43), "Illak Shi" (4:02), "Indulgence" (8:26), "Kaifa Uhibuka" (3:38), "Salam Min Dimashq" (7:00), "Almaya" (3:38), "Ghayeb" (4:54), and "Bint Elbalad" (4:59).
