Brand new. Opened only to make sound clips.

The Musicians of the Nile are a professional troupe of gypsy musicians hailing from Upper Egypt. Their dazzling mix of traditional songs is perfectly showcased on this early Real-World release, which was taped in both France and England during the late ’80s. With the dusky strains from the rababah (traditional fiddle), the mizmar (an oboe-like instrument), and the tablah (a hand drum similar to the darbouka) filling the air, the group delivers an array of trance-inducing long-players, including ensemble pieces as well as solo spotlights like the tablah feature “Zahrafat Al Sa’id” (Rejoicing in Upper Egypt) and the arghul (double-reed clarinet) vehicle “Kol Elle Qalboh Ankawa” (Everyone Has Had a Broken Heart). An essential disc for world music connoisseurs.

Track List:

  1. Al Bahr Al Gharam Wasah [Love Is as Vast as a River]
  2. Zahrafat Al Sa’id [Rejoicing in Upper Egypt]
  3. Ya Tir ‘Ala Shadjarah [Oh Bird Upon the Tree]
