Through The Orient - Feras Arrabi

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.

Geek Out

Dropped D tuning was used on this track. Experimented with percussion on this one which is something I am familiar with ex-band “Albaitil Ashwai”. Another fellow bandmate Zayd Msais played percussion. Mixing djembe, bongos, different shakers and little cymbals, plus a didgeridoo and bowl.
