Long term readers of this blog will know how much I love the sound of the oud (Arabian lute). Whenever, I need that particular tonic for a tired mind and body, there is nothing quite so calming as a lute plucked, slowly and with intent.
Fawzy Al-Aiedi (also spelled, Al Yedi) is a Iraqi oud player from the southern port city of Basra. Educated in Baghdad and in Europe he has recorded and performed around the world. This album of solo oud pieces, accompanied on several tracks by his own singing is a beauty. Have found great pleasure in it over the years. And I hope you do too.
