Hamza Shakkur & The Al Kindi Ensemble - Sufi Songs Of Damascus حمزة شكور ومجموعة الكندي – أغاني صوفية من دمشق

Hamza Shakkur was born in Damascus in 1944. At an early age he received a thorough training in Qur’anic recitation according to the Syrian tradition. His father was the muezzin at the local mosque who taught Shakkur the basics of spiritual recitation. At the age of ten, Shakkur assumed this role, thereby becoming his father’s successor.
Although he never learned to read music, he built up a repertoire comprising thousands of songs by learning lyrics and melodies by heart.
Among the mystics of the Sufi community he began studying the hymns of mystical love, a form of expression that is still highly respected in Arab society. Having studied the entire spiritual repertoire of Islam he was in much demand as a singer. He also made numerous recordings for the radio.
Later he became choirmaster of the Munshiddin (a group of individuals who recite the Qu’ran) at the Great Mosque of Damascus and performed at official religious ceremonies there, which made him immensely popular in Syria. The Great Mosque in Damascus is one of the most sacred sites in Islam.
Shakkur belonged to the traditional Damascus school of music. He felt a close bond with the Mevlevi Order, the community of “whirling dervishes”, and strove to preserve the continuity of their repertoire. This community is known for its whirling dance ritual, the epitome of Eastern mysticism. Dressed in wide swinging, bell-shaped white skirts and camel-coloured felt hats, they whirl to classical music and chanting.
In 1983 Shakkur and French musician Julien Weiss founded the Al Kindi ensemble, through which he succeeded in introducing this music to Europe and America.
The ensemble specialised in music from Arab-Andalusia and its repertoire covered both religious and secular themes. Its interpretations were heavily steeped in tradition. Weiss created an Arab musical ensemble with the Arab lute, oud, ney, kanun and a variety of rhythm instruments.
Shakkur selected songs with very diverse rhythms and melodies that impressively demonstrated his musical phrasing and improvisational talent. Particular emphasis was placed on preserving the unity of the sequence of songs and their musical mode as well as on playing songs in the traditional manner.
Sheikh Hamza Shakkur died in Damascus on 4 February 2009 at the age of 65.
The way in which Sheikh Hamza Shakkur could lull his listeners into a trance-like state by grace of his singing alone had to be seen to be believed. He possessed not only vocal talent, but also a powerful, sonorous and all-embracing voice capable of playing counterpart to an orchestra and filling an entire room.
His musical intuition was borne of a spiritual power that drew listeners into the mystical tradition of Sufism. His bass voice with its richly rounded timbre made him one of the most famous singers in the Arab world.

Sabah Fakhri - 1978 - Au Palais Des Congrès صباح فخري – في قصر المؤتمرات

Sabah Abu Qaws was born and raised in Aleppo. He studied at the Academy of Arab Music in Aleppo, and moved to the Damascus Academy, graduating in 1948. The nationalist leader Fakhri al-Barudi appreciated his voice, describing it as “majestic,” and took him under his wing, fostering his abilities and facilitating his entry to the Syrian Broadcasting Station. Under Barudi’s influence, Abu Qaws began to record traditional Aleppine songs and chants, excelling in muwashahat (songs of Andalusian origin). He was influenced by the grand traditions of Arabic song and practiced singing the Arabic mawal, a poem delivered in dramatic tone. In appreciation for his mentor’s help, the 17-year old artist dropped his last name Abu Qaws and renamed himself Sabah Fakhri. He quickly established a wide audience in Damascus and Aleppo, and rose to overnight fame in 1960 when he began to appear on national television. Fakhri concentrated on classical Arabic tunes and traditional Aleppine music, performing all- time classics like Sayd al-Asari, Ya Mal al-Cham, and Ib’atli Ghawab. By the early 1960s, he was appeared on television comedies starring the Syrian duet Doreid Lahham and Nihad Quali. He also performed in television programs like Nagham al-Ams (The Tune of Yesterday) and al-Wadi al-Kabir (The Greatl Valley) with the Algerian singer Warda.

Over a 50-year career, Sabah Fakhri managed to bring Aleppine music into every corner of the Arab world and preserve a music style that is being discarded by a new generation of Arab artists, who are using techno-music and video clips to promote their songs, rather than a strong voice, proper tunes, and lyrics. He has established himself as the king of tarab, an Arabic term for music that is so good that it seizes the listener and music lover. In the 1960s Fakhri helped co-found the Artist Syndicate in Syria and served as a deputy for Aleppo in Parliament in 1990. In 1992, he entered the Guiness Book of World Records for being the first performer to perform non-stop, for ten hours. A journalist who attended Sabah Fakhri at the Citadel of Aleppo, a monument that the people of Aleppo take great pride in and which serves as Fakhri’s favorite venue, described the concert saying: “Sure enough, down there on the stage, a rather rotund man of somewhat diminutive stature had appeared from nowhere. He stared at the crowd for a while, then strolled slowly towards the musicians, with whom he unhurriedly exchanged a few words. Finally the show seemed about to begin. Sabah Fakhri, dressed in a dark suit and tie and looking more like a businessman than my idea of an adulated star, grabbed the old-fashioned microphone, unraveling its cord as he measured his steps around the stage; then, without warning, his voice soared towards the skies. It was strong and pure and very distinctive. There is no way one can ever confuse his voice with anyone else’s after hearing him even once. It bestows on listeners one of these rare moments of grace during which they are confronted with perfection. The singer, at one with his musicians, was transubstantiated: they formed an uncorrupted composition, an entirely harmonious whole. This kind of music does not touch the intellect, but something far more primordial. It is as pure and nostalgic as the sound of the nay in the twilight, or a call to prayer at dawn. The concert lasted more than four hours, at the end of which the singer, as if in a trance, began to twirl to the music, faster and faster, not unlike a zikr performer, bringing the audience’s enthusiasm to a paroxysm.”

Dalal Abu Amneh - 2012 - About Balady دلال أبو آمنة – عن بلدي

دلال أبو آمنة واحدة من الفنانات الحاضرات، وبقوة، في الساحة الفنية، تميّزت بصوتها الطربي، منذ أن وضعت قدميها الصغيرتين – وهي بعدُ في الرابعة عشر من العمر- على سُلّم الغناء، فأجادَت حين غنّت، وتألقت في الغناء الكلثومي، بصورةٍ خاصة.تفرّدت وهي في السادسة عشرَ من العمر، بأغنية خاصة كتبها الشاعر د. عنان عباسي، “أنا قلبي وروحي فداك”، لِتُفوز في مسابقةٍ فنية لمتنافسين فلسطينيين في الداخل، ولتواصل مرحلة الانتشار، لكن برويّة.كانت دلال أبو آمنة، خلال الأعوام الماضية، حاضرة ومُشارِكة في أكثر من حفلٍ غنائيٍ في الداخل الفلسطيني أو في الضفة الغربية أو في دولٍ عربيةٍ وأجنبية، فتنقلّ صوتها بين الغناء الفولكلوري الفلسطيني حين غنّت “عذّب الجمّال قلبي” وسواها، وحين غنّت “يا فلسطينية” للشيخ إمام، إضافة إلى الفيروزيات والكلثوميات.

حضورها كان قويًا، وصوتها فيه عذوبة وشجن، يَسرِقُ الوقتَ مِن الوقتِ، ويستعيدُ ملامحَ واضحة، لفنانين من زمنٍ مضى، لكنّها، هِيَ التي تُطرِبُها الأغاني التراثية والفلكلورية والطربية، كانَت تبحثُ عن ذاتِها، خَلْفَ كلماتِ الحُبِ والشوقِ والحنين.وفي غمرةِ انشغالِها بأبحاثها وهي التي تنهي رسالتها في الدكتورة بتخصص”علم الدماغ”، قرّرت أن يكون لَها ولادة فنية جديدة هي “عن بلدي”، وعَن بلدي هو ألبومها الجديد الذي أطلقته في 14 كانون الأول 2012، وقد احتفى بِها عددٌ مِن الصحافيين والمهتمين في مدينة الناصرة، في غمرةِ الاحتفالات الميلادية.“هذا المشروع هو نتاج بحث عن الذات والهوية الموسيقية، بدأ منذ أكثر من عشرة أعوام، وتنقلت فيها بين المدارس الغنائية في الموروث الغنائي الموسيقي العربي الكلاسيكي لاكتساب الأساليب وتقنيات الغناء الأصيل من جهة، والوصول إلى الحداثة في التعبير الفني من جهة أخرى”، هكذا قالت دلال، عن ألبومها.

يُشار أنّ الفنانة دلال انشغلت لأكثر مِن سنة بتحضير أغنيات ألبومها، حيثُ استعانت بالموزع الموسيقي حبيب شحادة حنا ومهندس الصوت كارم مطر، إضافة إلى مجموعة من الشعراء المحليين، وعائلة الموسيقار الراحل مارون أشقر، إلى جانب رفيق دربها الدكتور عنان عباسي، علمًا أنها غنّت باقة من أغانيها الخاصة ضمن كونسيرت “عن بلدي احكيلي”، والذي تنقل في أكثرِ من بلدٍ فلسطيني في الداخل كحيفا والناصرة وشفاعمرو، إضافة إلى القدس ورام الله.

Dalal Abu Amneh دلال أبو آمنة

احتضن ألبوم “عن بلدي”، باقة من الأغاني الخاصة، حيثُ التصقت دلال أكثر بوطنها الفلسطيني وبهموم وأفراحِ شعبها، وأولى الأغنيات: “يا جبال جبالنا”، من كلمات والحان الراحل النصراوي مارون أشقر، دلال بخفةٍ أخذتنا بصوتها إلى جبالِ بلادنا، تقطفُ باقات الزهور، وتغنّي لربوع فلسطين الخضراء، في أغنية “يا جبال جبالنا”، وإلى “معلول” القرية الفلسطينية المهجّر أهلها في العام 1948، عرّجت دلال، لتقف على أنقاض هذه القرية المدمّرة، وتغني من كلمات سيمون عيلوطي وألحان صبحي خميس، حيثُ أنشدت “هالبيت في معلول بين الصبر والتين، بالبال لما يجول واتذكره من سنين، فرفِك إيدي وأقول اصحابه وين رايحين، الغربة مهما تطول أحباب الوطن راجعين”.وعن الإنسان وهمومه غنّت من كلمات ولحن مارون أشقر “يا عُمُر”، وفيها أمنياتٌ وحكاياتٌ عن الماضي، علّنا نعودُ بالأحاسيس والأحلامِ صغارًا، حينَ كُنّا نتغنى بالشباب.ولـ”ربى الكرمل” أغنية من كلمات الشاعر عصام العباسي وألحان خالد صدوق، بصوتِ دلال.

وعن الجمال والطبيعة غنّت دلال من كلمات وألحان بطرس خوري “يلا معي“، أما الأغنية الممزوجة بالإيقاع السريع “عين العذراء“، فهي قصة نصراوية، أبطالُها فلسطينيون يستمتعون بزيارة عين العذراء المعلَم التاريخي، نبعُ الماء، الذي استقت منه السيدة مريم العذراء، فصارَ المكانُ شعارًا للمدينة.وغنّت دلال “بلادي” من كلمات الشاعر عصام العباسي وألحان حبيب شحادة، فتغنّت بحب الوطن، المسكون في الفؤاد. ومن الفولكلور الفلسطيني غنّت عذب الجمّال قلبي.

وعرفانًا وامتنانًا لزوجها تضمّن الألبوم أغنية من كلمات الدكتور عنان العباسي، رفيق دربها، ومن الحان علاء عزام، “أنا قلبي وروحي فداك”. أغنية أخرى لفلسطين باللغة العربية الفصحى هي “بلدي”، من كلمات وألحان خالد صدوق، وفيها تغنّت دلال بجنة الله على الأرض، فلسطين بكاملها.

Anouar Brahem – 1998 – Thimar

   Posted by: Ninorta    in Anouar Brahem, Instrumental, Tunis

Anouar Brahem - 1998 - Thimar

The oud is an ancient short-necked, plucked Arabic instrument. On Thimar, East meets West with oud instrumentalist Anouar Brahem along with jazz masters, saxophonist/bass clarinetist John Surman and bassist Dave Holland. The opener, “Badhra,” commences with Surman’s light as a feather soprano work while Holland and Brahem successively join the festivities as if they were doing one of those “let’s introduce the band” exercises. “Taiwin” leans toward the Arabic end of the spectrum as Holland and Brahem perform Middle Eastern unison lines. Holland’s rich, exuberant sound provides a huge bottom for Surman and Brahem while also providing tonal color and rhythmic balance. This attribute serves as an interesting contrast to Brahem’s oud. “Mazad” features some extended ensemble work from the Trio. The muscular rhythmic pulse is provided by Holland and Brahem while Surman develops attractive themes with his fluid and crystal clear soprano work. Here, Surman’s phrasing and nimble tone seems angelic and my! stical.

The entire recording is amiable, wonderfully produced and absorbing. The ever present Middle Eastern feel is always an underlying factor; however, Holland did his homework to devise and implement the unorthodox pulse required to pull this off. Surman rides the top and provides the nuance and thematic movements. The entire project is captivating yet at times seems innocent and humble as if this were a spiritual exercise. Either way you look at it Thimar is entertaining and impressive. There’s a lot going on here. Recommended.


  • Anouar Brahem: Oud.
  • John Surman: Soprano Sax, Bass Clarinet.
  • Dave Holland: Double-Bass.
