posted on 25 / 10 / 2023

For today, I wanted to share with you “نحن ساهرون” (“Nahnou Sahiroun” or “We Are Awake” in Arabic langage), a splendid Middle-Eastern Spiritual Jazz Soul Funk track with gorgeous chorus & beautiful piano parts, taken from an album of Christian songs recorded in 1977 by the legendary Lebanese composers & musicians Ziad Rahbani & Bechara Khoury (زياد الرحباني و بشارة الخوري) at the Mar Elias church of Antelias (“أنطلياس” in Arabic, a city in the Matn District of the Mount Lebanon Governorate, located around 5 km to the north of the capital Beirut).

The chorus on this record is composed with the marvelous voices of the Broummana Oecumenical Choir (جوقة برمانا المسكونية) and the Youth Chorus Of Antelias (جوقة شباب انطلياس), and conducted by Mesrob Berejikan (مسروب بيره جيكيان).

Cherry on the cake of this Lebanese musical holy grail this gorgeous artwork by Paul Guiragossian – Enjoy !
