Hossam Ramzy and Jose Luis Monton
Flamenco Arabe 2 (Arc Music)
Volume 1 was great and Volume 2 is equally spectacular! Yes, Egyptian percussion prodigy Hossam Ramzy and flamenco guitarist Jose Luis Monton are back with Flamenco Arabe, Volume 2. The 14 tracks are well recorded and energetic, and will leave you clapping and stomping away.
Our picks include Sahret Ghawazy and El Hombre y el Saidi. The liner notes are informative and well-illustrated too. Excellent world-class acoustic fusion, this album truly captures Andalusian-Arabic synergies.
