A musical serial. Episode #18, Conte De L’incroyable Amour


The album Conte De L’incroyable Amour by Tunesian Oud player Anouar Brahem. An album similar to the album Astrakan Cafe, which we played last week. Conte De L’incroyable Amour contains a beautiful mid section where the oud steps aside and gives the main role to the Ney and Clarinet. A deep, quiet album that deserves to be played integrally.
