This CD contains several of what I call my "fish in a barrel" tracks; I know if I put one on, a wave of ghostly luscious ecstasy will ripple across the room. As one reviewer put it, these sounds could be from two thousand years in the past or future. Haunting and ethereal, and immediate, it gets right under your skin. Middle-eastern percussion meets sizzling violin/cello, and whatever else fits; quite masterful. Badawi (aka Raz Mesinai) is definitely someone to keep an eye on; of late he has been doing soundtracks for films, which I fully expect are worth tracking down.
