Dounya

Traditional songs for children

CD 1998 | Adès - Universal Jeunesse

It is not only because he was born in Basra in Iraq, the birthplace of Sinbad the sailor, that Fawzy Al-Aiedy wanted to put in songs a musical journey.

This virtuoso musician has chosen to put his voice, his poetry and the instruments he practices within the reach of children in order to introduce them to rhythms unknown in Europe and to share with them his sensitivity and his true passion for music.

"Dounya" (the world) allows both the discovery (through a collection of children's songs) of Arab culture and traditional oriental instruments.

"Records of the year to give and to offer" (Le Monde - Anne Bustaret).
