Following this former article, I wanted to share with you for today “الآن” (“Now” in Arabic langage), a spellbinding Middle-Eastern Soul Jazz Folk track with Brazilian influences, taken from the 3rd album of the legendary Lebanese band “Ferkat Al Ard” (فرقة الأرض) leaded by the guitar player Issam Hajali (عصام الحاج علي) and composed with :

Issam Hajali (عصام الحاج علي) : Vocals, Guitar ;

Toufic Farroukh (توفيق فرّوخ) : Flute, Saxophone ;

Elie Saba (ايلي سابا) : Bouzouki, Oud ;

This song was recorded at the mythical By-Pass Studio, located in Beirut, initially released on tape format, and re-released in 1995 on CD format.

A true Lebanese musical holy grail here, ultra hard to find, so hope you’ll like it – Enjoy !
