Ferkal Al Ard – Huloul (Lebanon, 1979, Zida) / فرقة الأرض – حلول

For today, I wanted to share with you “Huloul” (“حلول” or “solution” in Arabic langage), a spellbinding Middle-Eastern Soul Jazz track with Brazilian influences a la Arthur Verocai & beautiful flute parts, taken from the first album of the 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 (ايليا سابا) : Bouzouki, Oud ;

This album, arranged by the legendary Lebanese composer, musician & producer Ziad Rahbani (زياد الرحباني) & produced by the Lebanese-Armenian producer Khatchik Mardirian (co-founder with Ziad Rahbani of the mythical 70s Lebanese record label “Zida“) is considered by many as one of the hardest to find holygrail Lebanese vinyl record album ever out – Enjoy !

Fairuz – Al Bosta (Lebanon, 1979, Zida) فيروز – البوسطة (Lebanon, 1979, Zida)

Following to this former post I wanted to share with you for today “Al Bosta” (“البوسطة” for our Arabic speaking friends), a splendid Middle-Eastern Jazz Funk track recorded in 1979 by the legendary Lebanese Diva Fairuz (فيروز or “turquoise blue” in English), composed and arranged by her eldest son Ziad Rahbani (زياد الرحباني), also one of the greatest names of Lebanon’s musical history.

This song is taken from the mythical album “Wahdon“, recorded during the same session than Ziad Rahbani‘s Masterpiece “Abu Ali“.

 I found that long time wanted piece during my latest record digging trip in Lebanon (august 2021), so lucky I felt on that day.. hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do !
