Anouar Brahem releases The Astounding Eyes of Rita

The Caliph El Outhek once said, very wisely, referring to Al Mawsili, the master of Arab vocal art: "each time he sings I have the impression that my kingdom becomes greater". In listening to Anouar Brahem play I can say that the kingdom of music becomes greater" [...] Prophetic music. When the Tunisian Anouar Brahem plays the oud, the musical cultures of the East and West are reconciled.
