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.
