Aqsa Alwasat أقصى الوسط

Aqsa Alwasat is an experimental music project, from the city of Alexandria, born from the artistic collaboration between multi-instrumentalist and music producer
Amr Ezz and the singer  Tuqa McAwi.

Both musicians coming from different musical experiences.
Amr is a self-taught musician who has collaborated since 2004 with different groups of different musical genres while Tuqa was in 2009 the vocalist of a band of Heavy Metal Symphony.

Formed as a duo in 2013 they adopted the name Aqsa Alwasat
giving itself the aim of creating a sound entity that would merge their different musical experiences not bound to a specific genre.

The first pieces produced by the duo surprised by the delicacy and taste. Slow songs 
with a special atmosphere executed using piano, cello and synthesizers. Above  all the wonderful voice of Tuqa McAwi. Indeed, the sounds produced are hard to classify; Wanting to make a comparison might be with some 4AD label productions.

One of their first album entitled "Enti" was used for the soundtrack of the short film "Daye", made by the Egyptian director Peter Aziz, in which  participated as a guest the same Tuqa.

Since 2015 the duo has integrated into the project the cellist Byshuy Nassim transforming the group into a kind of mini orchestra. With the new line-up the songs made in the past  have been re-arranged and re-presented in a purely acoustic version.

At the moment the group spreads his music exclusively through Soundcloud and live concerts, and there are no reports about the implementation of a real album.

Aqsa Alwasat è un progetto di musica sperimentale , proveniente dalla città di Alessandria, nato dal sodalizio artistico tra il polistrumentista e produttore musicale Amr Ezz e la cantante Tuqa McAwi .

Entrambi i musicisti provengono da varie esperienze musicali.
Amr è un musicista autodidatta attivo dal 2004 che ha collaborato con diversi gruppi di generi musicali diversi mentre Tuqa, è stata nel 2009 la vocalist di una band di Heavy Metal sinfonico.

Costituitosi come duo nel 2013 hanno adottato la ragione sociale Aqsa Alwasat dandosi come scopo la creazione di un entità sonora che potesse fondere le loro diverse esperienze musicali senza vincolarsi ad un genere preciso.

I primi pezzi prodotti dal duo stupiscono per la delicatezza ed il gusto. Brani lenti e di atmosfera eseguiti servendosi di pianoforte, violoncello e sintetizzatori. Su tutto la splendida voce di Tuqa McAwi . Effettivamente le sonorità prodotte sono di difficile catalogazione ; se si dovesse azzardare un paragone potrebbe essere con alcune produzioni dell'etichetta 4AD.

Una delle loro prime canzoni intitolata “ Enti “ è stata utilizzata per la colonna sonora del cortometraggio “Daye”, realizzato dal regista Egiziano Peter Aziz, al quale ha partecipato come ospite la stessa Tuqa .

Dal 2015 il duo ha integrato nel progetto il violoncellista Byshuy Nassim trasformando il gruppo in una specie di mini orchestra. Con la nuova line-up i brani realizzati in passato sono stati riarrangiati e riproposti in una versione prettamente acustica.

Al momento il gruppo diffonde la sua musica esclusivamente attraverso Soundcloud ed i concerti dal vivo e non vi sono notizie circa la realizzazione di un vero e proprio album.

Fer'et 'a Nota فرقت ع نوطة

Fer'et 'a Nota is an independent Lebanese band that plays a fusion between jazz, oriental music, blues and rock. All this is packaged in a Lebanese context (the lyrics are sung in the Lebanese dialect).

The group is composed of six elements: Wajdi Abou Diab (Piano), Zaher Hamadeh (Bass Guitar), Ali Sabbah (Electric Guitar), Raghid Jureidini (Alto Sax), Petra Hawi (Vocal), Zgheib Jihad (Drums).

Founded in 2013, the group started immediately to compose original songs and to perform in concerts at clubs in Beirut, Byblos and Zahlé . After winning the Audience Prize in the competition for bands in Beirut, the band , in April 2014, began working at the realization of debut album. Entitled "Hi Jazz", recorded and mixed at Addicts Audio Studios in Hamra , this first work consists of 8 tracks that explore different musical genres. One of these compositions, entitled '"ح Jazz" gave the name to the album, and highlights the two spirits that animate the project, the jazz spirit and the Eastern attitude.

Fer'et 'a Nota's first studio album release concert happened at "Al Madina Theater" in Beirut on June 27 2014 , in a concert that was both crowd-pleasing and a critical success.

Ever since, the band has been performing gigs and concert in Beirut and all over Lebanon.

In June 2015, in an interview with As-Safir Newspaper, the band announced that a Muwashshah album is in the works ( Muwashshah is the kind of music which belongs to the age-old Arab tradition that uses poems in classical Arabic) , without announcing any release date.

I Fer'et 'a Nota sono un gruppo libanese indipendente che propone a livello musicale una fusione tra jazz, musica orientale, blues e rock, il tutto confezionato in un contesto libanese (i testi sono cantati in dialetto libanese).
Il gruppo è composto da sei elementi: Wajdi Abou Diab (Piano), Zaher Hamadeh (Basso elettrico), Ali Sabbah (chitarra elettrica), Raghid Jureidini (Alto Sax), Petra Hawi (Vocal), Zgheib Jihad (Drums).

Fondato nel 2013, il gruppo ha iniziato subito a comporre brani originali e ad esibirsi in concerti pressi i club di Beirut, Byblos e Zahlé. Dopo aver vinto il Premio del Pubblico ad un concorso per band a Beirut, il gruppo nel mese di aprile 2014, ha iniziato a lavorare alla realizzazione dell' album di debutto. Intitolato “ ح Jazz", registrato e mixato presso gli Addicts Audio Studios di Hamra a Beirut , questo primo lavoro è formato da 8 tracce che esplorano diversi generi musicali. Una di queste composizioni, intitolata «" ح Jazz "ha dato il nome all'album, e mette in evidenza i due spiriti che animano il progetto, lo spirito del jazz e l'atteggiamento orientale.

Il disco è stato presentato nel corso di un concerto tenutosi presso il locale Metro al Al Madina a Beirut il 27 giugno 2014, concerto che ha riscontrato ottimi responsi sia da parte del pubblico sia dalla critica musicale.
Da allora, la band si è esibita in svariati concerti in tutto il Libano.

Nel mese di giugno 2015, in un'intervista al quotidiano As-Safir , la band ha annunciato un progetto riguardante un album formato da Muwashshah (il Muwashshah è un genere musicale appartenente alla tradizione araba secolare che utilizza poesie in arabo classico), senza specificare alcuna data di uscita.

Arab tunes mixtape # 33 - Pop music will elevate your soul

Cover by Mohammed Mousa

After a mixtape consisting of pop songs that kill your soul, it seemed appropriate to me to balance everything. Here then this new collection. Tracks found here ranging enough and affecting pop music in the broadest sense of the term. They do not represent the best of what the Arab scene has produced in recent years, but are just a selection of things that, when I want a bit 'of lightness, I like to listen.

Pop with a soul

Dedicated to open minds.

Dopo un mixtape costituito da canzoni pop che ti uccidono  l'anima ,  mi sembrava corretto  equilibrare il tutto . Ecco allora questa nuova raccolta. I brani qui  contenuti  spaziano abbastanza e interessano la musica pop nel senso più ampio del termine. Non rappresentano il meglio di quanto la scena araba ha prodotto nel corso degli ultimi anni, ma sono semplicemente una selezione delle cose che, quando voglio un po' di leggerezza, mi piace ascoltare. 

Pop con un anima 

Dedicato alle menti aperte.
