Fawaz Baker Ensemble come from Aleppo, a historical city now going through
extremely difficult times. Before the war, Aleppo was an emblematic landmark
for the entirety of the Arabic music world, a crossroads of music traditions,
idioms and elements from the Byzantine, Arabic, Persian, Armenian and
Ottoman traditions. The musicians of the Fawaz Baker Ensemble, thanks to
their talent and knowledge, have managed to stand out in an environment of
cultural diversity and richness and to form their repertoire including adaptations
of a wide range of compositions from the mystical tradition of the East. The
musicians have managed to flee the war and to find refuge in Europe where
they now live.
Khaled Hafezal: percussion, vocals. Tarek Sayedal: oud. Tamam Ramadan:
ney. Fawaz Baker: bass.
