Ahmed Mukhtar: Visions of Iraq
Here is more Middle Eastern music, namely Iraqi Jazz from Baghdad-born lutist Ahmed Mukhtar. In his latest album, Visions of Iraq, Mukhtar performs Oud (lute) and Qanun (zither) to the accompaniment of flamenco guitar, strings, piano and percussion. All pieces have been composed or improvised by Mukhtar, except three variations and improvisations (taqasim) on traditional Arabic songs.
