About the Album :
بمناسبة الذكرى العاشرة لانطلاقها بالتعاون مع الفنان اللبناني مارسيل خليفة قدمت شبكة الجزيرة عملا موسيقيا ضخما بعنوان "شرق", بمشاركة مائة عازف ومائة منشد على مسرح بياسانزا التاريخي في ميلانو بإيطاليا. وعزفت الأوركسترا الفيلهارمونية الإيطالية بقيادة كارل مارتان هذه الملحمة الموسيقية التي تعتبر آخر إبداعات مارسيل خليفة الذي قدم في الأول من نوفمبر/تشرين الثاني ذكرى عيد تأسيس شبكة الجزيرة. وقد عمل مارسيل فترة طويلة لتحقيق هذه "السيرة الموسيقية" التي قدمت عبر شاشات الجزيرة وعلى الهواء مباشرة خلال الاحتفالية الضخمة التي اقامتها الشبكة بهذه المناسبة. وعن العمل قال خليفة للجزيرة نت إنها أداة تعبيرية كاملة تتخطى الألحان الشرقية بقدرتها على التعبير عن أعمق المشاعر الإنسانية. وأضاف أن العمل يحاول بعث روح جديدة في الموسيقى الشرقية تنقلها إلى الفن العالمي المستوحى من الروح المحلية, موضحا أنه يصور موسيقى الشرق بأسلوب حداثي يفهم لغته العالم وهو يشبه هذه السيرة بحكايات ألف ليلة وليلة تتلاحق فيها الأحداث وتنمو بتماسك لتكون النهايات ملتقى خطوطها جميعا, وتنقل السامع من جو إلى جو نحو ذروة العناصر المختلفة. وقال "لم اقتصر في (شرق) على محاكاة الموسيقى الشعبية الشائعة عندنا, وإنما درست بكل دقة هيكل هذه الموسيقى الشرقية وطريقة أدائها بكل ما فيها من تطريب وصيحات ومواويل وآهات, ومن هنا ربما تكون هذه الموسيقى أقرب إلى الواقع الحي الذي خبرته عن كثب". وعن طبيعة العمل البالغ طوله ساعة كاملة, قال إنه عبارة عن "رندحات وترنيمات وآهات", وليس فيه كلمات, إنه عبارة عن ألحان تنقل السامع من مشرق العالم العربي إلى مغربه, ومن الأندلس إلى الشرق الأقصى والهند. وأكد مارسيل أن ما يهمه من هذا العمل هو "إبراز ألحان الحياة لا الألحان الكلاسيكية". وأضاف أن كتابة هذا العمل نابع من شعور بأنه "البديل المتاح لكي أدخل في الحب ولكي أقول همسة ما في هذا الظلام الدامس الذي يغرقنا". فكرة إطلاق هذه الصرخة الموسيقية الغنائية جاءت من الجزيرة ومارسيل, فقد كانت الشبكة تبحث عن عمل جديد ورائد يعتبر بمثابة جسر يمده العرب نحو الغرب بلغة كونية يفهمها كل العالم. وكان مارسيل يبحث عن تطوير ما في عمله الفني. وعندما تلاقحت الأفكار قرر الطرفان الشروع بالتنفيذ. وعن ظروف إنتاج "شرق" قال عارف حجاوي مدير البرامج في قناة الجزيرة إن اتفاق الجزيرة مع مارسيل كان على أساس أن يكون العمل "موجها من الجنوب إلى الشمال, ويمد جسرا بأسلوب الموسيقى الكلاسيكية الحديثة, نحو الشمال المتحضر والمتقدم علميا ليخبره بأسلوب مبهر, أننا في الجنوب نشترك معكم في الإنسانية

El Lebrijano, Con la Orquesta Arábigo-Andalucí & Juan Peña : Casablanca

Album : “El Lebrijano” Casablanca

Artist : Juan Peña
Album : Con la Orquesta Arábigo Andaluza

Melodies :
1. Coge La Onda
2. Calle De San Francisco
3. Del Placer Que Irrita
4. A Canela Y Menta
5. Ay! Por Dios
6. Rezo
7. El Sueno Vencio Al Leon
8. A Calzon Quitao
9. Salada Claridad
.

----
Juan Peña Lebrijano is a Gypsy from Lebrija, Spain. He probably falls somewhere in the "nueva flamenco" school, although his previous albums have referred to "Andalusian fusion," a mix of flamenco with its deeper origins in North Africa's Maghreb. His Arab-Andalusian orchestra delivers a rich and vital music that is at once classical North African Arabic, full of string sections and large choruses (sometimes very Western European sounding), and part stripped-down flamenco. As a singer he is one of the greats, with a voice that is both wildly aggressive and yet retains a lot of control and subtlety. The core of this music is voice and palmas (hand clapping), abetted by small percussion, violins, and piano. There is little emphasis on guitar or oud, which at first makes the music sound more like Algerian classical folk than flamenco. But the core of the music is still in Spain, and while it is like no flamenco you may have heard yet, fans of Spanish Gypsy music will not be disappointed.

Said Chraibi is at the forefront of a younger generation of musicians that is revitalizing the traditions of Arab-Andalusian music in Morroco. His spectacular technique on the oud (short-necked fretless lute) in addition to his compositions that fuse tradition with modernity have made him famous in Morocco, as well as among enthusiasts of Middle Eastern music in Europe and the United States. Although he is steeped in the centuries-old music of the Andalusi orchestras, he is not a historian, seeking instead to broaden the repertoire through his own compositions and to broaden his audience through touring abraod and recording.
Chraibi was born in Marrakech, on February 2, 1951, picking up the oud when he was 13. He went on to study Andalusi music at the university, but didn't begin to generate international acclaim until he was in his thirties, when he won first prize for his playing at a competition in Iraq, in 1986. He toured throughout Morocco and the rest of the Arab world, but it wasn't until his appearances at the Fez Festival of Sacred Music that he earned recognition in Europe and the U.S. The Sounds True compilation from the 1996 festival, entitled Bismillah, featured a piece from his performance of that year and that lead to more recording opportunities, including a disc featuring his suite "Dreams of Fez," Holm Bi Fes. ~ Tom Chandler, All Music Guide
Saïd Chraïbi, né le 2 février 1951 à Marrakech, est considéré comme l'un des plus grands joueurs de Oud marocain.
Saïd découvre le luth à l'âge de 13 ans, et ne se séparera plus de cet instrument qui le conduira sur la scène internationale, en soliste, en orchestre, ou comme accompagnateur des plus grandes voix du monde arabe. Les oeuvres qu'il compose sont le prolongement de la tradition, l'aboutissement d'une recherche et d'un travail sur des modes très anciens Arabo-Andalous, Turques ou Perses. » (Cinqplanete) (voir sur le site)
Saïd Chraïbi est « un artiste qui a beaucoup apporté à la scène artistique nationale. Instrumentiste reconnu à l'échelle aussi bien nationale qu'internationale, Saïd Chraïbi est aussi un véritable découvreur de talents. Il a le mérite d'avoir révélé plusieurs artistes, dont la chanteuse Karima Skalli.(...) Pour ce qui est du luth, l'artiste possède presque tous les éléments de la famille de cet instrument noble, luth turc, baroque et autres qu'il aurait apportés de ses multiples voyages en Orient et en Europe. » (Libération, Casablanca, 25 décembre 2001)

Tarik Banzi : was born to one of the old Andalusian families (in Spanish) of Tetouan, Morocco who trace their roots back to Al-Andalus. He grew up immersed in the Andalusian tradition. Tarik later lived in Madrid, Spain throughout the 80's & moved in Flamenco, Jazz, and Middle Eastern music circles. Tarik formed the group Al-Fatihah with Judeo-Spanish musicologist Dr. Javier Sanchez, which has been recognized in Spain as the first group of Middle Eastern music. At the same time Tarik was collaborating and recording with flamenco masters such as Paco de Lucia, Manolo Sanlucar, Enrique Morente, Jorge Pardo & Carlos Benavent where Tarik introduced such mainstays into the flamenco sound as the darbuka (clay or metal drum) and Udu (clay pot drum). In the late 80's Tarik & Julia formed the group Amal together with Maria Ahmed, Rasgui Boujemaa.

CD1 .Traditional.
.............................
1. Mahmouna - Nass El Ghiwane : This is an epic gnawa trance builder from one of Morocco's most respected and influential bands. Loosely described as the Rolling Stones of North Africa, Nass El Ghiwane ruled the airwaves throughout the seventies, and continues to enthrall audiences the world over. 2. Assalamo Alaikom - Jil JilalaJil Jilala : Presents a refreshing take on the gnawa sound, albeit with a slightly cleaner persona than their rivals Nass El Ghiwane. Here they sing praise to Allah, with a very strange retro drum machine for company. 3. Mou T Jara - El Bahri : Forty-year old Moroccan singer El Bahri is based near Casablanca, and made his name singing popular Moroccan songs. This is a Moroccan call-and-response classic clocking in under the three minute thirty second mark. 4. Ateouni L'Kass - Raymonde : Born in Casablanca, but now living in Israel, Raymonde made her name in Europe singing at ex-pat private parties and Jewish weddings. This track makes full use of a throbbing darbuka rhythm, at once intense and trancelike. 5. LM Ouima - Najat AatabouAatabou : is one of Morocco's best-known female singers, with a penchant for penning starkly honest lyrics. This track is a typically tortured performance, rinsing every ounce of emotion out of her slight frame. 6. Gouli Je T'Aime - Youmni Rabii : An expert in chanson, chaabi, and rai styles, Youmni Rabii first made his name on the international stage when he joined German global beat pioneers Dissidenten. This is classic Moroccan rai with an infectious chorus. 7. Aita Jilaliya (Spiritual Call) - Chalf Hassan : Originally from Casablanca but now living in London, Chalf Hassan is a master musician / singer steeped in Koranic culture. He's played alongside Hossam Ramzy, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, but this percussive delight is pure tradition. 8. Klam El Aar - Orchestre Faycal : Exponents of Moroccan chaabi, this epic track features a pulsating darbuka rhythm, sprawling keys, and tight Oud solos. At times it sounds like a barrage of disparate elements, but listen closely and the rhythms start making sense. 9. Baba Mimoun (Father Mimoun) - Altaf Gnawa Group : This is classic gnawa with earthy call-and-response singing. The omnipresent three-stringed guimbri is backed by handclaps and karkabas (metal castanets), providing a heady mixture of spiritual Arabic tradition and West African roots. 10. Guafla - Groupe Sidi Mimoun : Metal cymbals, guimbri, chanting and that omnipresent, insistent, pulsating rhythm … what more could you ask for? Just close your eyes. 11. Beshmella Bdina - Groupe Ben Souda :Taking you back to the campfire tradition of the Moroccan gypsies, this is a percussion heavy masterpiece of male bonding. The large group effect is mesmerizing, giving the feeling of eavesdropping into the past.

1. Marrakech X-Press – Amira Saqati : Taken from their stunning new album 'Destination Halal' this driving Arabic techno anthem utilizes pulsating darbuka, oud, manipulated Moroccan vocals, and overdriven guitars. 2. Khalik Hdaya – Mara & Jalal : Cheb Mara was born in Mohamedia, a city near to Casablanca, and made his name selling tapes on Moroccan markets. For this project he hooked up with producer Jalal Hamdaoui, and the result is rai with a lolloping reggae beat .3. Kami Ni Mantara – Gnawa Njoum Experience : Ragga, dub, and gnawa don't sound like comfy bedfellows, but this wonderful track shows how effective the mix can be. Gnawa Njoum Experience consists of both French and Moroccan musicians and DJs, who met at hip Paris nightspot Batofar. 4. Visa – Momo : Based in the UK, Momo (Music of Moroccan Origin) wowed festival audiences a few years ago. Recently they've been ominously quiet, but Visa, taken from their debut album, shows what the initial fuss was all about. 5. Idman – U-Cef : Recorded shortly after his groundbreaking debut album, this sees ex-pat Moroccan producer U-Cef's strong hip-hop sensibilities take on the latest Western break beat techniques, and includes some deft Arabic rapping. 6. Sadats: Fnaire Remix – Cheb I Sabbah : This is a radical reconstruction from rising Moroccan hip-hop stars Fnaire. The original (featured later) took its impetus from gnawa trance, whereas this version adds a funky bounce and cool rapping to the mix. 7. Malful Reaction – DJ Click : Part of the Boom Da Clash collective based in Paris, DJ Click is a prolific composer drawing most of his inspiration from Morocco. This track is electro dub with a distinctive North African tint. 8. Droub Al Lil – Azzdine with Bill Laswell : Based on a traditional track straight out of Rabat, the rhythms are heavily muted and given a heavy dub makeover. Lyrically the track is modern Moroccan poetry, speaking about dark, illicit night thoughts. Azzdine Ouhnine is a blind Oud player and composer . 9. Thé á la Menthe – Nino Korta : A track chosen as much for its title as its contemporary Moroccan club sound, Nino Korta adds minimalist traditional samples to a funky electro beat, scratches, and eerie desert laden effects. 10. Sadats (Saints of Marrakech) – Cheb I Sabbah feat. B'Net Marrakech : Taken from the critically acclaimed album 'La Kahena', this was a radical departure for San Franciscan based producer Cheb I Sabbah, marking a return to his North African roots. Celebrated female vocal group B'Net Marrakech, who give the track its earthy, intransigent edge, joins him. 11. Wyadi Ahlam – Dar Beida 04 : When producer Pat Jabbar recorded Dar Beida 4 in Marrakesh, he hadn't realised that celebrated female vocal collective B'Net Marrakech lived just around the corner. Jabbar describes the lyrics to this dub heavy track as "surrealistic, Dadaistic dreams. 12. El Baqara – Abdeljabbar : An exclusive track that really rocks out from the Barraka stable. Baqara means cow, and Jabbar describes the track as being about "the golden cow, the worship of statues, and leaders … images as symbols of higher powers and the need to destroy them."Words: Phil Meadley with the grateful assistance of Pat Jabbar.
