Hamza Shakkûr & Ensemble al-Kindî

Hamza Shakkûr & Ensemble al-Kindî / Takasim & Sufi Chants from Damaskus

Takasim & Sufi Chants from Damaskus

The recordings of the Ensemble al-Kindî provide a rare opportunity of discovering authentic Arabian music. The songs and instrumental pieces combine inner tranquility with a sensuality of great beauty.

Sheikh Hamza Shakkûr, leader of the Whirling Dervishes of Damascus, is a singer who draws deep upon the living tradition of the Sufi. Le Monde has hailed him as "the greatest interpreter of Syrian Sufi singing." The Ensemble al Kindî do more than accompany Shakkûr’s singing; they highlight his technical and artistic skills superbly. The brilliant flautist °bd al-Salâm Safar has profoundly influenced a whole generation of flautists. Adil Shams al-Dîn is regarded as Egypt’s leading classical percussionist. Julien Jalâl al-Dîn Weiss, from France, has made a name for himself in the Arab world and elsewhere as a virtuoso qanun (zither) player.
