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.
That's one of his magnificant albums; Alif-Love Supreme..
