Entre Nil et Gange by Hussein El Masry

Two masters of their respective instruments (Hussein El Masry and Narendra Betaju) create a series of duets for sitar and oud (with percussion) that highlight the close relationship between Arab and Indian music. Music that transports the listener to the imaginary confluence of two rivers and the magical confluence two musical cultures.
Hussein el-Masry was born in Cairo, Egypt in 1952 and is a one of the great oud players, composers and singers. Here he is accompanied by sitar player Narenda Bataju, a pupil of Ravi Shankar. and percussionists Adel Shams el-Din on riqq and daff and Hanif Khan on tabla. This recording is a single, long improvisation, 54 minutes in length.
