When You Play Peace!!

I was introduced to Omar's music a couple of weeks ago by mere chance. Ever since, I just can't get his songs out of my playlists.

Farouk is a turkish musician. His music blends mysticism with vision of peace; you can recognize the sufi, romantic, folkoric, modern, jazz, latin or even modern backgrounds inflouncing him. Perhaps that's the real secret of the magic it holds; the cosmic nature of his music. He once described it saying "Music is the shortest way to feel God."

Farouk is also well-known as a multi-talented player; he plays nay, def, oud, baglama, kavala, along with other insturments

I believe I can go non-stop talking about him & his music. However, I prefer to let you experience it yourselves.

Before you start downloading his album below, try to listen first to the INTRO he puts on his official site & see for yourself if you're interested in this kind of music.

ُُُُEshta!! I've listened to the man long time ago, he's really wonderful, and this album is just a small piece of his musical worx..
About "Ya bouy", I knew only lately that it's a song of Farid el-Atrash, despite I was playing it with a group of Japanese friends few years ago.. but the arranging is really perfect
One more thing to say about Omar, that his mother is Egyptian, that's why Egyptian music has a big influence on him, shukran Blu, gr8 choices
