Notes

Distance, tension, construction, wandering, inspiration… The strings vibrate and the trip begins. In Khaled Ben Yahia’s fascinating playing, one can feel nostalgia, desire, return to basics, sadness, bliss, love and departure.

The Oud, an oriental lute, is part of his spirit and soul. His breathing is contained, his voice comes out, deep and muffled, like the precious ornament of an inner breath. His fingers roll, attack, unwind, improvise melodies full of Oriental mysteries.

In this album, Khaled makes up taqsim (non measured improvisations), using all the ressources of maquams (modes) like hidjaz, bayati, kurdi…and ends up with more fanciful but still controlled compositions. Intensely, softly, as a skilful musician, he releases bright, unforgettable  sonorities, shimmering colours, palpable silences which take the attentive listener, fascinated by the artist’s virtuosity, towards his own worlds suffused with the magic beams of Tunisia.
