AL'ARRABI Release Party

Al’ARRABI is an instrumental album and an anthology of songs with themes centered around either an emotion, an observation, or an idea, but all tell a story. These themes are expressed through melodies, harmonies, and rhythms, which, like characters in a play, develop and transform to the narrative arc.

Track 1: Long Way

About

The first track of the album and for good reason, since it embodies the philosophy that brought Al’ARRABI to fruition. Long Way attempts to express a musical telling of the hero’s journey; a path taken without shortcuts returns the protagonist back to where he started, but not the same as when he left.

Geek Out

Long Way is the track with the most iteration since it acted as the model which the rest of the tracks would follow. Moreover, it is the first track that led to Fouad Azar becoming the bassist and arranger for the rest of the album.

Vadim has mixed and co-produced the record, at his own studio ‘Calm Frog Recording’ overseas in the US.

In this video Vadim talks about ‘Long Way’ and prog.

Struggling musicians like us do everything nowadays individually ‘DIY’ and this guy is all about DIY!
