Album Notes :
Home Again is about the longed-for journey that I undertook in February, 2004 after the fall of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. It was a journey back to my homeland of Iraq and my family home in Baghdad after 13 years of exile in Jordan, Syria, and the United States. During this first leg of the journey, "going home", I spent one wonderful and terrible month in an Iraq that I couldn't recognize; an Iraq destroyed by the two Gulf Wars and by the intervening years of harsh sanctions. People and places dear to me were either palpably damaged or completely destroyed. I learned of my father's death since I had left, as well as the destruction of my beloved Baghdad Institute of Music where I had studied under the great Munir Bashir. I also spent infinitely precious times with my dear mother and sisters and brothers, nephews and nieces and friends. These were times of healing and reconnecting--of sharing their pain and dreams and lives again. And then it was time to say good-bye, wonder who I would never see again (my mother died a few months after I left) and come "home again" to my dearly loved, newly-adopted home of Albuquerque, New Mexico"
