Rayon de Lune (Moonbeam) is the second release of Arab-Andalusian music by the French ensemble Aromates, directed by Michèle Claude. The Arab-Andalusian tradition, which is closely related to Sephardic music, traces its roots to the Middle Ages, when Arab learning and commerce made the Andalus one of the liveliest and most diverse cultural centers of Europe. It developed a highly sophisticated musical tradition and a rigorous pedagogy for transmitting its practice from one generation to the next. Its rhythms were often remarkably complex in comparison to contemporaneous European music, using meters such as 17/8, 13/8, and 14/4. The selections recorded here are mûwashshah, songs with verses and refrain, and intricately ornamented melodic lines. In the instrumental arrangements of the songs, Claude uses a wide assortment of Renaissance, modern, and non-western instruments, including vielle, gamba, string bass, flute, psaltery, lute, and organetto, as well as a wonderfully diverse percussion battery that includes instruments like the djembe. The character of the music is close to that of contemporary traditional music with near eastern origins, but the diverse instruments give it a distinctive mix of old and new sounds. One of the outstanding qualities of the music (and these performances in particular) is its ability to simultaneously express rhythmic vitality and languid ease. This reconciliation of opposing elements is completely engaging and invigorating. The unique repertoire, fine arrangements, and energetic performances make this a disc that should appeal to fans of world music, near eastern folk music, and early music.

Picasso, when painting meets music

The modernist genius of Picasso quickly went beyond the pictorial frame to irradiate music and dance, two arts with which the Spanish painter has always had a close relationship, even influencing his composer friends met along the way.

David Byrne, a burgeoning mind

He was the leader of the Talking Heads, he recorded punk funk and South-American music, republished gems of world music, spent countless hours cycling through large cities throughout the world, and dabbled in dozens of other activities. What is truly going on in David Byrne’s head?

The One Thousand and One Eastern Voices

From the call of the muezzin to the cries of the Palestinian underground, the pre-Islamic music and the Egyptian chaabi electro, let’s go back to the voices that feed the infinite musical diversity of the Arab world.
