Product Description

Composed and performed on traditional Near Eastern instruments by accomplished Arab artist Ali Jihad Racy, this CD is a musical tribute to the ancient treasures and religious symbolism of the Egyptian Book of The Dead.

This now world-famous musical tribute was inspired by (and commissioned for the exhibition of) Tutankhamen's tomb.
