Le Paris Bagdad

acoustic music inspired by oriental tradition

CD 1999 | Music on the go / Buda music / Socadisc distribution

The Paris Bagdad tells the story of Fawzy, that of a man who flies over Iraq in "a large bird". He sees a little light below, and thinks of this country, his, where he has not set foot in a long time.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

Fawzy captivates with his music which borrows from the oriental traditions of the Thousand and One Nights and the muezzin blues while moving towards the writing of today's music.
