Toyour, a conceptual album, the tracks will be creative interpretations inspired by the themes and concerns of birds. Hello Psychaleppo, a music project started in Aleppo in 2012, gained momentum and attention when Samer released his next album in Beirut. These albums founded the new music genre, ElectroTarab, which combines electronic music and innovation with Arabic heritage music. Hello Psychaleppo's music has been described as “alternately danceable and cathartic, melancholic and apocalyptic”. Hello Psychaleppo’s envisioned ablum, Toyour, seeks to create an experience restricted to tracks related to the bird theme. I was inspired by the book, Conference of the Birds, by Fareed Al Deen Al Attar, and have been researching and experimenting with bird related songs since reading it two years ago.
