Tekbilek, plays an impressive array of instruments on Whirling, including the instruments he is most often associated with, the ney flute and the lute known as baglama. Tekbilek's arsenal also includes lesser known instruments like the Arabian clarinet and Turkish oboe, as well as a battery of jar drums and frame drums, and the Western accordion. Guest musician, Brian Keane, contributes atmospheric washes of guitar and synthesizer, and a small but select ensemble of Middle Eastern musicians round out the sound with Arabian lutes, zither, and percussion.
Brian Keane is a talented composer and performer whose credits include many solo guitar and small ensemble recordings and a large number of soundtracks. He is also sought after as a producer, and has worked with Tibetan Bells II artists, Henry Wolff & Nancy Hennings.
Oud or lute virtuoso, Ara Dinkjian, and renowned percussionist, Arto Tuncboyaciyan, are both members of the popular band, Night Ark, which combines Western and Near Eastern musical forms. Hassan Isikkut is a composer and virtuoso on the Arabian kanun, or classical zither.
This mesmerizing music is not only spiritual, but can be used as a meditation by anyone. It is soothing, but not dreary or boring. The artists skillfully play this sacred music. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Northern SW
