Album Remarks & Appraisals:
After concerts with a full orchestra and a multi-awarded debut album, David El-Malek goes further and returns with a stunning second volume recorded with 10 Jewish and Arab musicians. From one end of the Orient to the other, his music inspired by Jewish, Arabic and jazz influences transports us at the same time to familiar and to totally new worlds.
