ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Khalil Abboud, Arabic vocal artist from Lebanon, has been moving audiences with his voice for over three decades. Khalil has made singing appearances in Kuwait, Damascus, Paris, London and various locations in the USA and Canada. In 1979, he moved to San Francisco and since then has sung at well known nightclubs and fine restaurants, including The Casbah, Sheherezad, Royal Morocco, El Sultan, and Al Pasha. In Cairo, Egypt, Khalil met with some of Egypt's top composers and musicians, including Hassan abou el Seoud, a top composer of hit songs for top singing artists all over the Middle East. Khalil introduced Leyla Lanty to Hassan abou el Seoud, who then composed for her "Leyla's Music", a belly dance piece (track 3).

Leyla Lanty captures the essence of Egyptian style, combining movement, melody, and meaning, delighting audiences both Arab and American with her Danse Orientale, Cane Dance, and Egyptian Folkloric Dance.

Born in the USA, Leyla fell in love with Arabic dance and music in the 1970s. She has since dedicated her time and talents to studying, performing, and teaching Raqs Sharqi. In 1978, she moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and has performed and taught there ever since. During that time she has studied with the best dance artists, both Arab and American, in the USA and in Cairo, Egypt. She has learned to speak and sing in Arabic. She also plays finger cymbals in an Arabic music ensemble. In annual study trips to Cairo, she expands her repertoire, studying Danse Orientale and Folkloric Dance. In 2006 she was invited to join the staff of the annual "Ahlan Wa Sahlan" festival in Cairo, Egypt, at which she teaches dancers how to play finger cymbals while dancing.

Heavenly Music!
This is one of the most beautifully arranged and produced CDs of Arabic music I have heard. The sound is rich and velvety, inspirational to dance to and luxurious just to listen to. LOVE IT!

Catwomyn

Great danceable Egyptian music
All the songs are danceable! Usually there are 1 or 2 songs on a cd that are usable but this is all good stuff. I've been playing it practically continuously since it arrived.

Cons - at 39 minutes, it's a little short.

Beautiful CD with great music
WOW! I love this delightful CD. Even my Arab husband, who is hard to please, agreed that this is exceptional music.

Khalil Abboud is a fabulous singer and the women doing the
background singing are excellent. My favorite piece is the first track, "Ma b'tishaloosh leh?,"; it is very emotional and has lots of interesting changes to the music. The second track, "Ya Tayyeb el Galb," is a different arrangement of an older song and it adds a new level to music that I already loved.

The fourth track, "Walla keida agbeen," is very witty. Khalil Abboud sings, "I do one thing, you don't like it. I do the opposite, you don't like it. What else can I do? What else do you want?" Leyla was kind enough to include the English translation for the songs. It makes such a difference when you know to what you are dancing.

The sound is clear, the drumming amazing, lots and lots of emotion conveyed without sounding overdone...an all around great CD.

Standard Disclaimer: I earn nothing from this except the knowlege that I am sharing the opportunity for great music with you.

Excellent CD a must for professional dancers to have in their collection!
An amazing arrangement of music. This CD is now one of my favorites! I have been looking for a long time for track #2. Now I have it:) This music is very emotive and moving. Wonderful fun and enjoyable. Excellent for the Arabic audiences too. Moderate tempos and rhythm changes. Beautiful CD. I love to use it in the class-rooms!
