Ancient Iraqi rhythms based on Arabic maqams convey images of ancient bazaars and mosques in Baghdad and other ancient places. Ahmed Mukhtar has effectively developed a new technique of performing Oud solos, emanating from a profound understanding of the history of the instrument and Arabic music, by bringing to the fore a fresh blend of the philosophic and aesthetic elements specific to this art. The instruments used are Oud, dumbek, riqq, khishba, and duff (tar). Featuring Sattar Al Saadi. DETAILS IN ENGLISH, FRENCH, GERMAN, AND SPANISH!

A really enjoyable CD. Nice recording quality, good playing. Several of the tracks are drum-only pieces, which make the CD an unusual piece of work to me. This recording doe not have the most striking compositions I have ever heard, but very pleasant to have in my collection. Raqsat al-Bedawi is my favorite track.

A truly pleasant surprise to the ear. For the visual interpreter, it would be a sweet challenge!
