Description
Enchanting music by Arabic and Turkish composers is performed by Hicham Chami, a native of Morocco who has studied the qanun since the age of eight. Derived from the ancient psaltery, the qanun is a plucked stringed instrument with roots in the Middle East. Chami also leads the Oriental Classical Ensemble of Chicago. Among the 11 selections are Bashraf Nawa Athar by Yusef Basha (1820–84), Taqsim and Sama'i Rast by Tatyus Efendi (1858–1913), and Longah Faraffaza by Riyad al-Sunbati (1910–81).

"Chami is a truly gifted performer with a beautiful mastery found only in the most skilled and practiced musicians. His music is calming and exquisite in its subtlety."—Lindsay Siegel, Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs
