Call From The Minaret


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
What a joy to collaborate with Alf! He came up with a very interesting melody inspired by this call from a minaret. Then he arranged some instrumentation to go with it and by the time he sent it over to me it was already pretty groovy. I added some more parts, guitar, percussion, organ and remixed it a bit. Here is the result, we hope you like it (we do!). -SM

An island in the Middle East
And here were are in an altogether different direction.
Reggae meets the middle East....
Very cool concoction!
Really bizarre and interesting changes.
Sounds like you two had fun with this.

it's like the dreams you might get after you've been sightseeing the world for a week. wow.

in addition to Reggae and Middle Eastern, there's a Hawaiian angle to the vocals somehow, and ...?

thanks

What a nice ....
... array of sounds here. It was like being on vacation while listening. I was just missing the fact that the beach wasn't in my office - but my head was bopping along anyway.

I love this!
What a fantastic contribution from both of you. i must say, I've never heard anything quite like this. It's TONS of fun -- really. I love the feel of this. It's very optimistic and SUCH a groove! I'll have to go ahead and download this one. Thanks. :-)

your comments mean so much to me...
...I started this tune over a year ago, being pissed off about the situation in the Middle East, especially of international racial paranoia, seeming to raise its ugly head. I simply got stuck on the piece, & when the opportunity of working with Sergio (Secamode) came about, I thought that he would be perfect to add that element of 'optimism', which, after reading your kind comments, he clearly has!
Thank You So much Miss C!

This IS a bit of everything-
I enjoy listening to musicians who are not concerned about 'absolute authenticity' of one style, and can work with a canvas that includes sounds from anywhere and everywhere. This really moves along, and has some fresh sounds and combinations. Great collaboration!

...this was
the great thing about this collab. Sergio & I have quite different 'approaches' to music, & the Middle East 'flavour' was the common thread between us. It was very exciting to hear Sergio's final mix. I agree with you on the 'authenticity' issue, & like food the various ingredients, although 'seemingly' disparate, can sometimes combine to create new & interesting results. Thank You so much for stopping by Kristyjo!
Cheers!

Great track
I listen to alot of Middle East music and this is a brilliant take, esp the fact that the reggae kicks in and completely transforms the track. A pleasureable listening experience. Even my wife thinks its great.

Very cool ..

.. happy and sunny. I thought at first the vocals were singing "it's a long way, long way .. for a kebab" 8o) .. but that was prolly just me... so pay no heed.

Groovy, happy catchy tune - yup, reggae meets middle eastern.
