Artist: KARKHANA
Title: For Seun Matta
Format: LP
Label: Holidays
Country: Italy
Price: $28.00
"Featuring some of the most innovative players from Beirut, Cairo, and Istanbul, Karkhana met for the first time in Beirut in 2014, bringing together influences from the three major experimental music scenes of the region and beyond. Through their live shows, the bands seven multi-instrumentalists build a transcendental atmosphere developing what could possibly be called free Middle Eastern music. Shades and traces of shaabi, tarab, sufi, and much more are heard in the distinct blend of free jazz and psychedelic krautrock theyve created. Recorded and mixed by Matt Bordin at Outside Inside Studio -- in only two days -- and mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering Studio in Chicago, For Seun Matta is the first studio album by the band following the 7" Nafas released on Omlott (2016) and Live At Metro Al-Madina released on Sagittarius A-Star (2015). Featuring Sharif Sehnaoui on electric guitar, Sam Shalabi(The Dwarfs Of East Agouza) on oud and electric guitar, Maurice Louca (The Dwarfs Of East Agouza) on organ and synth, Umut Çağlar(Konstrukt) on zurna, gralla, bamboo flutes, and percussion, Mazen Kerbaj on trumpet, Tony Elieh on electric bass, and with the recent addition of Michael Zerang on drums. "I wish I could track down more of this tantalising outfits music to share. . . . This Middle Eastern super group first got together to celebrate the music of Egyptian surf guitarist Omar Khorshid -- who was also a key figure in Oum Kalthoums orchestra -- but their remit has expanded somewhat and now theyre fully committed to outer-perimeter explorations in krautrock-leaning, cosmic free jazz" --John Doran, The Guardian. Edition of 500." - Holidays.

Price: $8.00
Limited to 300 copies. "Combining some of the most innovative players from each of three cities (Beirut – Cairo – Istanbul), Karkhana met in Beirut for the first time in February 2014 with the very ambitious aim to bring together elements from the three major experimental music scenes of the area. The bands music strives to create a unique musical blend combining free jazz and psychedelic with various shades of ethnic and traditional music, traces of shaabi, tarab… Building on the multi-instrumental capacities of its members, the group tries to create an atmosphere full of surprises for both the listeners and the performers themselves, developing what could possibly be called a “Free Middle-Eastern Music”." - Omlott.
