Rabih Abou-Khalil Arabic: ربيع أبو خليل, born August 17, 1957 is an oud player and composer born in Lebanon, who combines elements of Arabic music with jazz, classical music, and other styles. He grew up in Beirut and moved to Munich, Germany, during the Lebanese Civil War in 1978. Abou-Khalil studied the oud at the Beirut conservatory with oudist Georges Farah. After moving to Germany, he studied classical flute at the Academy of Music in Munich under Walther Theurer. Rabih Abou-Khalil. Tarab is an unusual album for the great Lebanese jazz composer and oud player in that it features no Western instruments or musicians, except for Glen Moore on the acoustic bass. The melody instruments are the nay Arabic flute played by the Syrian veteran Selim Kusur and, as always, Abou-Khalil on oud or Arabic lute which more or less functions like the piano in a standard jazz quartet. Rounding out the group are Nabil Khaiat on frame drums and percussion, and Rameesh Shotham on South Indian drums and other percussion. Everyone but Kusur has worked at least semi-regularly with Abou-Khalil. Rabih Abou-Khalil - Sahara - Продолжительность: 8:19 Hakunin 14 430. Язык: Русский. Страна: США. Album 1993 9 Songs.

Tarab has a very much Arabic or Mid-Eastern sound, but some passages are strongly influenced by classical Indian music, especially when percussionist Ramesh Shotham plays tabla drums and engage in some raga. Unlike many of its successor, Tarab does not have much jazz influences, and remains acoustic and almost totally instrumental. The different pieces can range from festive and happy to reflective or even a tad melancholic, often coloured by Selim Kusur's flutes, of which the bamboo flute, but not only. RABIH ABOU-KHALIL is a Prog Folk, Progressive Rock artist from Lebanon. The classically trained flautist and oud player Rabih Abou-Khalil relocated to Germany during the Lebanon civil war in 1978. Abou-Khalil, long known for his great improvisations on an ancient art form, delves into the free arena jazz provides, playing off his experienced accompanists with verve and a careful, focused attention. The result is music rooted in the Arabic world, rich with desert tones and jingling percussion, but one that dances in darkly hypnotic musical jams. Awakening spotlights Khaiat and Shotham on South Indian and frame drums, tambourine, and percussion during long, flittering solos of thick, overlying cadences while Abou-Khalil's oud deftly bounces along
