Here is Fawzy Al-Aiedy's second album. Coming from Basra, he now lives in Paris (20th arrondissement). Far from its cultural brothers. Yet he still sings in Arabic. He sings Arabic. A language that is already music, with its long, its short, its doubling of consonants, from the throat to the lips. And the texts he sings, he chooses. Poetically and politically. And if he takes care, at each of his concerts or on the covers of his records, to translate them, it is because he wants us to understand each other well. Let everything be clear. Paradoxically, with this language which is foreign to us, everything goes without saying: the music confuses words.

Memory is jostling. The question remains open. And the music in all of that, you might say. Hearing, saying is not easy. Listen to it instead. For further information, please contact Al Farabi, Avicienne, Safiyu D-Din, Al Kindi. They are translated.
