Effy B I am torn between several tracks, but I guess Layla makes the cut since it has this very somehow melancolic feeling to it, yet is very energetic. But also in general the record presents some good perpectives on contemporary music in Arab language. Favorite track: Layla.

Bearl Hoffayeur Absolument magnifique. De l'instrumentation à cette voix pleine d'une si belle mélancolie par instant, cet album est une poésie en soit. Favorite track: Ya Balad.

Philipp Rudloff The record is very special. Atleast for me, it feels very experimental and new. Nothing in my music library is comparable to this. Not only the album differs from everything on this list, the single tracks have so much variety to them as well. I’m very impressed. Favorite track: Kyrie Eleison.

about

Fascinating turn by French Lebanse singer-songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist, Bachar Mar-Khalifé. He is a product of the Conservatory of Paris and has collaborated with conductors Lorin Maazel, James Gaffigan as well as with the Orchestre national de France and the Ensemble intercontemporain. He has worked on a series of projects that melt jazz, world music, electronic and hip-hop with artists as diverse as Bojan Z, Carl Craig, Francesco Tristano, Murcof or Kery James. Moreover, Born in war-torn Lebanon, he is the son of the legendary Eastern-Lute player Marcel Khalifé, and the Brother of Rami Khalifé (a member of the band Aufgang). With this esteemed background he brings us his third LP for the Parisian label, a heady brew of sparse neo-classical arrangements and haunted vocals.
