about

Tamas is a free improvised project, initiated and organized by Joss Turnbull and Pablo Giw. It took place during 10 days of 2010, with musicians from Germany, Marocco and Syria. In studio-recordings, rehearsals, and concerts the musicians worked and improvised with arabic poetry, field recordings and improvisational concepts.

The lyrical material spoken and sung by Abdelghani Elmassaoudi includes classical arabic and pre-islamic poems. The field recordings of two journeys to Lebanon and Syria in 2009 and 2010 were part of the concerts and studio sessions.

Abdelghani Elmassaoudi - vocals
Joss Turnbull - field recordings, percussion
Mohamad Fityan - nay, kawala
Pablo Giw - trumpet, cornetto
Matthias Kurth - electric guitar
