5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent December 25, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
Rahim AlHaj, master of the oud, may have created his masterpiece with this work. It is a double album of collaborations with musicians from radically different genres and all corners of the world. But while many projects of this type develop a scattershot feel, AlHaj manages to unify the work with his unique vision. He spent years on this project, and the effort really shows up in the disc.

I've been lucky enough to see him perform live several times, including collaborations with different artists that led to some of the standout cuts on this album. He's a masterful musician who is never afraid to push himself into areas that he's not sure will work. His discipline, personality, fearlessness and years of tireless devotion have culminated in an album not quite like anything I've ever heard before. Amazing stuff--well worth owning.

EDIT: Since I don't see the guest musicians on Amazon's track listings, I'll include them here for reference.

DISC 1:
1. Sama'i Baghdad, feat. Little Earth Orchestra (string quintet + percussion)
2. The Searching, feat. Guy Klucevsek: accordion; Katie Harlow: cello; Issa Malluf: riq, daf
3. Sailors Three (oud solo)
4. Morning in Hyattsville, feat. Bill Frisell: guitar; Eyvind Kang: viola
5. The Other Time, feat. Yacouba Sissoko: Kora (21-string West African harp-lute)
6. Rocio, feat. Roshan Jamal Bhartiya: sitar
7. Missing You/Mae Querida, feat. Maria de Barros: vocals
8. Dance of the Palms, feat. Glen Velez: frame drum, riq, shaker

DISC 2:
1. Fly Away, feat. Santa Fe Guitar Quartet
2. Going Home, feat. Little Earth Orchestra (string quintet + percussion)
3. Athens to Baghdad, feat.

4.0 out of 5 stars This album had some new sounds to it September 14, 2012
By DJdoze
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album had some new sounds to it and i was able to see it performed live. The use of different ethnic musicians from around the world while making a new sound is the best trait of this album. If you like middle eastern music and other ethic sounds then i recomend this album
