A NoHo Arts music evaluate of Mohamed Assani’s “Lullaby for Guli” monitor from his “Wayfinder” album.
A few years in the past I reviewed Mohamed Assani’s album, “Wayfinder,” which I liked. This monitor “Lullaby for Guli,” a single launch from the album, is simply as particular, that includes Assani’s distinctive mix of sitar and electronica, classical, world, jazz and progressive rock.
Mohamed Assani’s “Lullaby for Guli” is written as a love letter to his mom and all moms, with beautiful atmospheric sitar music, landscapes of recent devices and compelling vivid cinematic sounds.
Assani is a multi-award-winning and internationally regarded musician primarily based in BC, Canada. This monitor was recorded at a studio in the midst of the rainforest within the Kootenay Mountains of B.C., Canada. Bears and cougars and the wildness of the world appear to have knowledgeable the tune. Mixing fashionable sensibilities with the traditional is one thing of a specialty of Assani, and this stunning and profound monitor is a beautiful extension of that.
As you hearken to this unfolding tune it’s laborious to not visualise. Please put this on the subsequent Bond film.
There’s a wonderful depth to each observe, whereas the music swells and the sitar shimmers, the world Assani creates is evocative and daring and stunningly melodic.
I’m a fan, clearly. Mohamed Assani is a musician for the ages. Pushing his ardour into the longer term, with a look to his previous and the historical past of this superb instrument, however by no means shying away from what’s new and thrilling.
He’s on the frontier of cultural hybridisation, main us deeper into the plush panorama of worldwide music.
I can not love “Lullaby for Guli” greater than I already do. Though, to be truthful, I discover one thing extra at each pay attention. As a mom I’m honoured and touched on the stunning sentiments and the video actually made me weep! Its evolving sounds wrap round you, elevate you up and sweep you away on waves of affection. Completely find it irresistible!!
