This instrumental CD from Omar Faruk Teklibek is truly mesmerising. It invokes images of the Arabian nights and warm desert winds. Track 3 - Love, Respect , Truth is particularly haunting, the introduction stirs something deep within. An excellent chillout album for a warm summers night. Highly recommended.

A terrific album 11 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was Tekbilek's first solo album following a series of collaborations with Brian Keane, but it's a winner. Although he pays extensive tribute to the Sufi musical tradition, he covers a wide range of Middle Eastern music, from "Gawazi" (which perfectly captures the sound of the Egyptian gypsy entertainers), to the more Central Asian-feeling "Caspian Winds." "Old Man's Dance" is spunky and dignified at the same time. And if you're a belly dancer, "Fly Away" is a great veils piece. I found the final track rather vague and airy (especially compared to some of his later work in the same vein, e.g., the conclusion of "Mystical Garden"), but it's pleasant to listen to. Tekbilek is a wonderful musician, as are all his collaborators, and they deliver masterful performances. Keane generally keeps his electronics in a tasteful supporting role rather than getting in the way of the traditional instruments. This is an album I'll definitely play often.

Very touching Arabic and Qur'anic recitations 27 April 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A modern enhancement of traditional and modern Arabic vocals with undulating synthesizer-rythms.
A masterpiece!

Ethereal 16 Oct. 2000
By Sabina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
You all know there's alot of "garbage" music on the the market and on the airwaves these days. If you are truly ready for something completely different, try this! You'll be transported momentarily to another time and place!

Prepare to start whirling! 15 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you can keep from jumping up and dancing, then you aren't listening to this CD! The music compels you to move, to spin and dance. Aside from one track, which was mediocre, each song is filled with emotion. Truly beautiful.

A Joyous Delight!!! 29 April 2008
By Matthew Conners - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A great recording -- period. My favorites are tracks 2, 3, 4, 5, and 8.

Definitely not mainstream, but for those that appreciate middle-eastern music, skilled musicianship, or just in the mix for something different and artistic this could be your cup o tea. I'm so glad I bought this. One of my favs for sure! I can't get enough kanun.
