Azazme (Yair Dalal & Tarab Ensemble)

This album was recorded live during few sessions at the Azazme Bedouin tribe's encampment in the Israeli desert, the Negev.
Yair Dalal and members of his regular ensemble "Al Ol" play here alongside Bedouin musicians and singers and try to follow the original musical spirit of the desert.
The instruments used here are typical Bedouin, the nei, Jurun (a coffee grinder used for playing music), rababa and simsimyya.
These peculiar sounds are joined with Dalal's oud with and Avi Agababa's percussion.
A truly expressive album, Azazme captures the essence of desert music, a unique experience that records the sound of a vanishing culture.
