Named "The Norah Jones of the Middle East", the internationally acclaimed Jordanian virtuoso Farah Siraj and the award-winning pianist and composer Victor Gutierrez present a unique musical experience, a meaningful encounter between East and West: The Arabian Jazz Project.
This gathering of one of the brightest Jordanian artists and some of the finest musicians in the New York jazz scene has been forged after many thoughtful conversations about the recent events in the Middle East, including The Arab Spring. As a result of this dialogue, they teamed up to create a multicultural band with accomplished musicians from different parts of the world.
The Arabian Jazz Project is a musically and culturally unique concept. With Farah Siraj from Jordan, Victor Gutierrez from Spain, Matt Geraghty from the United States, George Mel from Georgia and Kinan Idnawi from Syria, the project is a cultural melting pot where Middle Eastern rhythms and melodies blend naturally with Jazz and Western Harmonies. Recorded in New York City with Grammy Award-winning Jeremy Loucas as co-producer, the project blends the best essences of both worlds. Original compositions and traditional folk tunes deliver a powerful message of love, peace and understanding between cultures.
