No Fitna, just music

Just found out about this cd last night. Pulsating Arab rhythms fused with fiery Andalusian flamenco. The album is called Flamenco Arabe and is the very successful cooperation of Jose Luis Monton and Hossam Ramzy. I already had a cd by Hossam Ramzy.

The album takes you back to the old silk and spice routes to find the origins of Arabian, North African and Flamenco Music. It reaches deep into history to find the incredible journey of these nomadic tribes that caused the conception and birth of such magnificent styles of musical compostion.
