Bassam Saba Ensemble Buy his music here
“Saba’s debut album, ‘The Wonderful Land,’ is a masterpiece, a compilation and caliber of work that could only emerge from one of such breathtaking ability, vast accomplishment, and years and years of rich life and world experience given voice to only now. An electrifying mix of classical Arabic and gypsy Turkish tradition infused with hints of western classical arrangement, each piece of Saba’s music paints a different picture of his life’s work, experience and travel. … With joy and energy come pieces such as Nirvana, a classical-contemporary Arabic suite which invites listeners to join an unfolding exploration of what could be an ancient Arabian palace, where mystery and intrigue give way to the discovery of a great celebration of music and dance.
