Ishtar Connection Album

Ishtar Connection Album


Fawzy Al-Aiedy pays homage to Arabic song from the Middle East (Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt) and the Maghreb (Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria), a spicy tribute with its own melodies. Ishtar Connection takes us on a journey between the sensuality of oriental melodies and the power of electronic sounds.
