The Prosecution of Mustapha al-Agha (working title)

Two or the Dragon  |  Music  |  2018  |  Lebanon
The project consists of a musical album by the duo “Two or the Dragon” of Abed Kobeissy and Ali Hout, springing from Nahda music (1798-1939 according to Albert Hourani) as an art based on the sound identity of the cities of the Levant at the time. The study also stems from the importance of identifying oriental musical accents that adopt the current sound identity of Levant cities as local aesthetics, and expressing them artistically without causing a rift with the roots of Arabic poetic music.
