Here is something wonderful coming out of Middle Eastern lands. Nationally and internationally acclaimed composer and virtuoso violinist, Riad Abdel-Gawad & his four-piece ensemble-"Takht" of Egyptian virtuosos perform on rarely-heard classical ethnic instruments. This music celebrates the art of musical ecstasy-"Tarab" with meditative yet breathtaking improvisations-"Takseem" and whirling dervish-like pre-composed music. The music cross-fertilizes International World, Sufi, Jazz and Classical music genres.
