"Oriental Timing" (avalible on iTunes)
"Oriental Timing" Is a concert tour that describes how the Arab and Andalusian music culture met and exchanged tunes and rhythms. 800 years ago.
Andalucia in Spain ; an Arabic Sultanate, where Jews, Muslims, Christians and the newcomers Gypsies, lived side by side with mutual respect for each other's traditions and culture.
Just Arabic and gypsy music from Andalusia was - and is characterized by improvisation, the ability to convey mood of the moment.
The music is peppered with spontaneous whim, and many solos on both Qanun, Indian tabla, trumpet and flamenco guitar.
The music is preferably written by Lars Bo Kujahn, but there are also presented traditional flamenco and North African melodies.
The journey to Andalusia is a contemporary encounter between flamenco and Arabic music personified by:
Poul J Knudsen : Guitar, (known from "Flamenco Passion") is one of the most distinguished practitioners of the Flamenco Guitar in Denmark. Mirwais Fedai : Indian Tabla, perc. (Known from "Dunia", "Mizgin" et al.) have Afghan background, but grew up in Denmark and is today one of the best tabla players in Scandinavia.
Lars Bo "Khaled" Kujahn; Qanun, guitar, percussion,composer
