Bright Side of the Moon

Issa Boulos  |  Music  |  2017  |  Palestine
A collection of original instrumental pieces and songs composed and arranged for a large ensemble. The compositions speak directly to the Palestinian experience and musically articulate Palestinian musical idioms and place them in a global context. Whether through the usage of maqam, rhythm, lyrics, harmony and sonorities, the compositions tend to recall the ancient, the sacred and the timeless. The final result is an album and a series of performances.
