The Voice of Passion
Music of the world
" The young Syrian lute player and singer Waed Bouhassoun has a very remarkable tone of voice : Waed has a voice that is not a copy of any other, she has the voice of Waed ". In this second album for Buda Musique, after the success of "The Soul of the Lute", she performs two different facets of the rich Arabic vocal art. The first is inspired by the Nabataean poetry of southern Syria, and the other by classical poetry such as that which emerged notably in Muslim Andalusia, in the eight centuries (711-1492) of the Islamic presence in Spain. She is accompanied on some songs by Moslem Rahal, virtuoso of ney flute, with whom she already had the opportunity to play, notably in Jordi Savall's Hesperion XXI ensemble.
