CD 2019 | Musiques en balade - Inouïe Distribution

For the first time in his career, after multiple creations between East and West, Fawzy AL-AIEDY was keen to pay tribute to the traditional Arabic song from Middle East (Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt) and Maghreb (Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria) spicing  them with his own melodies, with new energy, combining modernity and tradition. Combining sensuality of oriental melodies and power of electronic sounds.

"An anthem for freedom. An album that makes you want to be alive
TV5 Monde 29/11/2019

Fawzy Al-Aiedy's new album ... A dialogue is established between traditional rhythms and electronic pulsations, an unprecedented gateway which required both its double culture and an intergenerational synergy. Three young musicians from current music therefore joined him to create a new sound space.

Véronique Leblanc - Or Norme - Mars 2020

Four men and a goddess! ISHTAR in the spotlight, goddess of opposites, (Love and War) - to reveal that anything is possible, provided it is sublime ... And sublime they are! In the alliance, eastern and western cultures, trad and creative, electro-synthetic and acoustic, in the harmony of arrangements working in lace  and the power of groove. It will vibrate!
