Rabih Abou-Khalil is a Europe-based Lebanese oud (a fretless lute) player whose music is a fusion of traditional Arab music, European classical music, and jazz. He's recorded with musicians from the Middle East, India, Europe, and America, including Sonny Fortune, Glen Moore, and Steve Swallow. YARA is the soundtrack for a movie, scored for oud, violin, cello, and percussion. The music is spare, hypnotic, and haunting, the mood pensive, reflective, and mysterious. Acoustic guitar fans might very well get enthused about Khalil's fleet, passionate picking in "On a Bus" and "The Passage of Life." Dominique Pifarely's soulful, restrained violin winds down dark streets and soars above the trees. The musicianship is exquisite throughout, and the superb recording quality gets the listener inside the instruments themselves.
